Faverdale Hall has a history dating back some 300 years built in the reign of George II. During the 18th century the Faverdale estate including Faverdale House belonged to the Stowell family and was at the centre of some hundreds of acres of moor and cultivated land. In 1896 the estate was sold to Mr C Backhouse, a Darlington banker, the old house was rebuilt and modernised, the centre portion retained, large East and West wings added and a new dignified title of 'Faverdale Hall' bestowed upon it. The Hall was the centre of social and sporting events in the district.
