Easington Village Conservation Area


Easington Village is situated to the east of the A19 trunk road. It occupies an elevated position only 2 miles from the coast, 11 miles east of the City of Durham and 12 miles south of the city of Sunderland.

Easington Village is an ancient rural settlement. Its form is archetypal of a medieval British village: buildings cluster around the village green, which is overlooked by an impressive medieval parish church and rectory. Its interest lies in its ancient layout, archaeological interest, and its buildings, which testify to architectural trends, local building traditions and past activity in the area.

The Conservation Area was originally designated in 1974 and was reviewed and amended in 2008.

Easington Village Conservation Area Appraisal

To ensure County Durham's conservation areas are properly managed, we produces Conservation Area Character Appraisal documents that will help raise awareness of their special character and interest. The Easington Village Conservation Area Character Appraisal was produced by the former Easington District Council in 2007 and recommends ways to improve and to manage change as well as providing an interesting history and snapshot of the area.
