The Best High Street in Britain, as voted for by BBC Breakfast viewers! Yarm’s town centre is dominated by a cobbled High Street which runs along the centre of the loop formed by the Tees. At the centre of the High Street is the little Dutch style Town Hall built in 1710 by Viscount Fauconberg, who was Lord of the Manor of Yarm.
A marker on Yarm’s Town Hall in the High Street marks the height of the mighty flood of 1771 which reached seven feet above ground level.
