      BENFIELDSIDE PARISH (1894)
      THIS parish, which was formed from the extensive parish of Lanchester, by an Order in Council, dated September 3rd, 1847, comprises a portion of the township of Benfieldside, an ancient township within the manor of Lanchester.

      Benfieldside Township is principally the property of Messrs. Annandale, Frank Priestman, Esq., J.P., George Peile, Esq., J. A. K. Faulconer, Esq., Richard Murray, Esq., and several smaller proprietors. Its area is 1620 acres, and its rateable value, £17,387. The population in 1801 was returned with Medomsley township; in 1811 it was 275; in 1821, 341; in 1831, 534; in 1841, 1,074; in 1851, 2,4775; in 1861, 4,026; in 1871, 4,432; in 1881, 5,695; and in 1891, 6,269 souls. At the time of Hatfield's survey this township was held by many tenants; and from the time immemorial, the Bishops of Durham have appointed foresters or keepers of their woods of Benfieldside. Two persons from this township joined the rising of the North (1569), one of whom was afterwards executed. This township contains no village of its own name, but includes those of Shotley Bridge and Blackhill, and the hamlet of Snows Green.

      Benfieldside Local Board was established in 1868, and consists of twelve members. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday in each month at the offices, Shotley Bridge. The district is nearly co-extensive with the township, except a small outlying portion.

      The Board School is a good stone building, situated in Benfieldside Road, was erected in 1877, at a cost of about £6,000, for boys, girls, and infants, capable of accommodating 600 children. The average attendance is-boys, 236; girls, 236; and infants, 90. The master's residence and caretaker's house adjoin the school. The board was formed in 1877, and consists of seven members.

      Shotley Grove School (mixed and infants) is a neat stone building in Cutlers' Hall Road, was erected in 1841, by Mrs. Annandale, was enlarged in 1893, will now hold 157, with average attendance of 80 scholars.

      Reading-room and Library, established in 1893 as Shotley Bridge Reading Society, contains reading rooms, reception rooms, and a small library, and is supported by subscription.

      Temperance Hall, erected in 1876, is a good stone building, contains lecture-hall, capable of seating 300 persons; also rooms below, which were formerly used as reading-room and library.

      Shotley Bridge and Consett District Gas Company was established in 1856, and by an Act of Parliament, obtained in 1869, the company was empowered to supply the following places-Shotley Bridge, Blackhill, Leadgate, Consett, Medomsley, and Ebchester. The present capital is about £30,000, consisting of one-half in Consolidated stock, and half in £10 shares. The works are situated at Shotley Bridge and there are two gasholders, capable of containing together 12,000 cubic feet, 81 retorts, and there are over 400 public lamps. The annual consumption is over 35,000,000 feet.

      Cottage Convalescent Home, Elm Park, of the Cathedral Nurse and Loan Society (Newcastle branch), was established here in May, 1888. Accommodation is provided for twelve patients. It is entirely supported by subscription.
