The village has a public house called the 'Bridge Inn'.
In October 1829, Whorlton Bridge, then under construction, was destroyed when the River Tees flooded. John Green of Newcastle upon Tyne was called upon to design a replacement. He based the Whorlton Bridge on the Scotswood Bridge, which he had designed earlier. Construction began in 1830, and the bridge was opened in July 1831.
