You are on Cross Hill looking at the Crosshill Hotel (2)
During the middle ages Sedgefield was made up of farms and cottages built of timber or stone with thatched roofs. Development of buildings over the years has created a variety of styles which contribute to the charm of the village. The earliest remaining buildings probably date from the 17th century.
The market was held on Cross Hill from 1312 until 1918. The market cross was removed during the 19th century, but the name Cross Hill survives. A Farmers Market is now held on the second Sunday in each month.
The trees around the green were not planted until early in the 20th century.
