QUOTATION During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries Darlington was generally known as `Darnton'. During a visit to the town in 1603 King James of Scotland penned a verse about the place, starting with the two lines: “Darnton has a bonny, bonny church / With a broach upon the steeple” (Simpson, 2009).
