Here is a very handsome church dedicated to St. Botolph, and built in the form of a cross (see Churches for photograph), the living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Durham, of which the Rev. James Britton, D. D. is the incumbent. This place, which now consists of three houses, was once a considerable village. Foundations of many houses have from time to time been discovered in an adjoining field, which on that account is called " Old Bossall" Robert Belt, Esq. resides at Bossall. Population, 31."
