A little pub history
The Old Farmhouse has existed in Middleton St. George for over 250 years, though it surprisingly did not begin life as a farmhouse. Originally, the building was used as an inn called The Wheatsheaf, before being converted into a farmhouse by a retired sea captain. In the 1950's the building was left empty, before being converted back into a pub in the early 1980's.
Make a day of it
The world's first public railway, the Stockton and Darlington Railway, passed through Middleton St George and there's an excellent museum not far from The Old Farmhouse. Durham Tees Valley Airport, previously RAF Middleton St. George, is nearby.
