Cold Hesledon (County Durham)
Despite these remains of Cold Hesledon's 19th and 20th century history, slight traces of the villages earlier past have also been found. The name of the village itself is probably of Old English origin, meaning the 'hill by the hazel valley'. Even older remains have been found in the area- remains of at least one Bronze Age axe head have been discovered.
