English: High Westwood is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated a few miles to the north of Consett, near Ebchester and Hamsterley. Once a thriving village, due to the local coalmining, it is now little more than a few private houses, and the former old infant school is now a housing complex. The village is surrounded by countryside and the once railway line is now part of a country walkway. Like many small villages after the coalmines were shut, the village disappeared. In the nearby woodland you can still see deer, red squirrels, and beautiful glades of bluebells.
