Former world darts champion Eric Bristow has taken on local players in games at a Stanhope pub.

On Sunday, 27th April, the Pack Horse in Stanhope was bursting at the seams in its beautiful, market town setting.

Eric was traveling around the UK as part of his work with Punch Taverns, visiting venues where chuckers and experts of the arrows alike gather for a game of 501. Eric also recently visited Ferryhill and took on Crook.

The venue was also playing host to charity bungee jumpers fresh from their 200ft climb and descent in Waskerly and a fancy dress party.
