Skinnergate was once the location of Darlington's Skin Market. In 1621, the local council decreed, 'Noe tanners shall bye any skins, but upon the Skynnehill'. The long-gone tanners are remembered by the name of this Wetherspoon pub.
Sixteen years earlier, most of Skinnergate and High Row had been destroyed. Around half the town - 273 houses - were burned to the ground. By the start of the 18th century, the leather trade had been replaced by a sheep market.
