Local History Talk | Thurs 28 March, 2pm 

'A bit of an Historian and a Philosopher' : The Teesdale Hermit | a talk by David Butler 

This is the story of Frank Shields, 'The Teesdale Hermit'. Born in 1815, he occupied the ruins of Barnard Castle and acted as a self-appointed guide, guardian of the castle and restorer of the buildings. After leaving the castle he spent a period in the workhouse, before resuming his eccentric lifestyle at Egglestone Abbey
