Village Design Statement

For anyone interested in the detailed history of Thornton-le-Street, we have a Village Design Statement (VDS) which is filled with interesting and useful information. We would encourage anyone with an interest in the village to read this excellent and thoroughly researched document.

The VDS was last updated in February 2014.

You can download the VDS from here (Adobe Reader PDF).

  1. Fascinated to look at the VDS. My great grandfather and his family's address in the 1901 census is the Stables, this appear to be near Ivy Cottage. His name was William Sanderson and he was a Game Watcher. At least 3 of his children were born in the village according to the census. He had moved by the 1911 Census. His father was a Game Keeper in nearby Newsham by Breckenbrough.
