Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm
Located on the corner of the Market Place and known to many as Pod, this multi-use space has undergone a transformation and has finally been given the official title of No.42.
Our Collections Display, presenting both Future Plans and archived items, is a gateway to both the past and future. It offers you a chance to look forward to the exciting changes ahead for Bishop Auckland and take a sneak peek into our archives.
Our ground floor shop and gallery supports local artists, offering them a place to display and sell their work – some of which has been created upstairs in Pod, the special incubator studios created to help new creative businesses.
The workshop area, hosting a wide range of Heritage Craft skill sessions and other creative events, is a place where the whole community can try their hand at something new and develop skills and interests. You can get hands on with history creating handcrafted slippers, scarves, jewellery and much more.
