The town of Bishop Auckland (population approximately 25,000) is in County Durham in North East of England, close to the confluence of the river Wear and its tributary, the river Gaunless. It was an urban district until 1974, when it merged with adjoining areas to form the Wear Valley District of County Durham. In April 2009, the Wear Valley District was merged with six other districts of County Durham to form the unitary authority of County Durham.
