Chilton Town Council Area


Chilton in County Durham is located about 4 miles east of Bishop Auckland and a mile south of Ferryhill. In the mid 19th century the village of Chilton and the surrounding area formed a township within the ancient parish of Merrington. At that time Chilton was part of Ferryhill ecclesiastical (religious) district, under the old St Luke's Church. Chilton Parish of St. Aidan's was created in 1925 from parts of Aycliffe, Coundon and Ferryhill parishes. Chilton gained town status in 2000 and is served by Chilton Town Council. The population of Chilton was 3,744 at the time of the 2011 Census.
