An introduction to Pennine Website Design and Development

Jamie McBain BSc

Pennine Website Design and Development located in Barnard Castle

I have over 25 years experience in designing and making websites and have a degree in Computing and Cartography from Oxford Brookes University. When I am not making websites for people I enjoy walking in Teesdale with my dog.

I now look after about twenty-five live websites which can be seen on my portfolio pages. Please contact me to discuss your project.


If you are considering having a website made for your business, I am a skilled and experienced website developer. I offer high quality websites that will impress your customers.
