Living in Consett: The Local Area Guide

The handsome town of Consett lies about 14 miles southwest of Newcastle Upon Tyne, a little way from the stunning scenery of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the mid-19th century, Consett was a village with a population of just 145 people, but things were about to change rapidly, thanks to its proximity to coking coal, iron ore and limestone: the three magic ingredients needed to produce iron and steel. Various ironworks were established in the area, leading to Consett becoming an important centre of industry and a much larger town.

The decline of the British steel industry in the 1980s was a blow to Consett, and the deindustrialisation of the North East led unemployment to reach 36% in Consett in 1981. However, the town was regenerated during the 90s, and now has a busy little town centre with a good selection of shops and pubs. Since the removal of the steelworks, the town has become known for its picturesque views across the Derwent Valley, and is an increasingly popular place to live for commuters from Tyne & Wear and Durham.

Demographics

As of the 2011 census, Consett has a population of 24,828. The population of Consett is older than the national average, with 21.1% of people falling into the 45-59 age bracket. The town has a higher rate of home ownership than the national average, suggesting it is a relatively affluent area. 16.27% of people fall into the AB social grade classification, and 28.39% fall into the C1 grade.

Education

As it is a sizable town, Consett has a large amount of primary schools to choose from, many of which are have been rated by Ofsted as being ‘good’, such as Ebchester Church of England Primary School, The Grove Primary School, and Castleside Primary School. Secondary-school-aged pupils are served by Consett Academy, which has been rated by Ofsted as ‘good’, and St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School and Sixth Form College, which is a few miles down the road towards Durham.

Transport

Consett doesn’t have its own train station; the nearest is 9 miles away at Stocksfield. The town does have good bus links, with services running around the town and surrounding areas, as well as to larger urban areas such as Durham and Chester-le-Street. The nearest airport is Newcastle Upon Tyne, with services to London and other domestic airports, as well as European and international destinations. Consett is linked to the busy A1 by the A691, and is also close to the A68.

Amenities and shopping

Although Consett is no longer a centre of industry, it does still have a lot going for it. It is very close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and relatively close to the stunning scenery of the Northumberland National Park. The town centre has a nice selection of shops, with a good mix of local specialist shops and recognisable chain stores such as Peacocks, Boots and Argos. Consett is home to one of County Durham’s oldest theatres, the Empire. It has recently been refurbished and shows theatre, comedy and children’s shows, plus it regularly screens the latest blockbusters and 3D movies. The town has a good selection of pubs, many of which have been named to reflect the town’s proud heritage as a centre of steel making, such as The Works, The Company, and The Company Row. For foodies, the town offers both an Indian and a Thai restaurant, plus a selection of cosy cafes.
