The Area

Dalton Piercy
Dalton Piercy is a traditional village lying just to the west of Hartlepool. Originally just called Dalton, the village was once part of the Manor of Hart which was granted to Robert de Brus by William the Conqueror. It was later transferred to the Balliol family and ‘Piercy’ was added to its name in the 13th century following the marriage of Ellen de Balliol to William de Piercy, Duke of Northumberland. Until recently the village green was a perfect example of a medieval ‘two-row’ form and was gated at each end to keep in the cattle in. The village has grown in more recent times and is perfectly placed for access to the surrounding centres of Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Durham, Sunderland and Newcastle.
For the commuter the A19 and A1 (M) provide links to the major commercial centres of the north east. The East Coast Mainline Railway and International Airports at Durham Tees Valley and Newcastle offer further communications with the rest of the country. Many of the regions attractions are within a days drive, including the North Yorkshire Moors, the Lake District, Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
