Brierton (village)


Brierton is a rural village located about a mile south west of the suburbs of Hartlepool. One of the suburbs of the town of Hartlepool is also called Brierton, or sometimes "Brierton Lane". Both the village and the suburb of Brierton are in the ceremonial county of County Durham, and within the Hartlepool unitary authority.

Brierton is a small village and civil parish in the borough of Hartlepool and the ceremonial county of County Durham, England. The village of Brierton, is itself situated a short distance to the south-west of Hartlepool, but there is also a suburban area of Hartlepool bearing the same name. This often causes confusion, which is why the suburban area is sometimes referred to as "Brierton Lane" to differentiate between the two separate areas. The village is located up the lane which is a cul-de-sac, and very rural. Close by to the suburb, was "Brierton Hospital" which was a fever hospital. At the 2011 Census the population of the civil parish was less than 100. Details are maintained in the parish of Dalton Piercy
