Sadberge village is a small, pretty village of approximately 300 houses and
630 residents, situated on a hill on the north side of the A66 between
Darlington and Teesside. The village name derives from the Viking term
Setberg, meaning "flat topped hill", and Sadberge was once the capital or
Wappentake of the Viking settled area north of the Tees. Today, its
pleasant surroundings and easy access to the A66 make it popular with
professional people working in Darlington or Teesside. Sadberge is also
home to a significant number of elderly people, many of whom have lived in the
village for considerable lengths of time. The number of young families
in the village has declined to a low number.
