About Sedgefield ....
Sedgefield is an ancient village known to exist in Norman times but probably much older. Occupation in the area can be traced back as far as the Roman era when there was a settlement here, straddling a Roman road.
In Victorian times the extensive Winterton Hospital was built which was one of the largest mental hospitals in Europe. That has now been demolished and Sedgefield today is primarily a dormitory community with small but significant light industry. In the past few years a new development 'Netpark' has provided a base for emerging technology enterprises.
