Information from:

Eggleston parish council

The parish of Eggleston lies between the river Tees to the south and Eggleston Fell to the north, which is the border with Weardale. Photograph by Gordon Hatton.

The view from Folly Bank, which lies to the east of Eggleston village, commands one of the finest views in the country, looking on to Upper Teesdale and the high Pennines.  Eggleston village lies just to the north of the B6282, which is the main road through Teesdale on the north side of the river Tees.  Roads lead off Folly Top to Woodland, Staindrop and Barnard Castle and at the bottom of Folly Bank, south to Romaldkirk, Mickleton and west to Middleton in Teesdale and to the north to Stanhope.  These junctions make Eggleston the crossroads to the area and therefore gateway to the dales.
