Easington Village Civil Parish

The ancient parish of Easington covered a wide geographical area, with St Mary's as the parish church. In 1894, Easington Parish Council was established, taking over the civic responsibilities of the ecclesiastical (religious) parish. When the coal mine was established in 1899, the settlement of Easington Colliery grew, within the civil parish of Easington. In 1983, Easington Village and Easington Colliery became separate civil parishes. Easington Village Parish Council held it’s first election in May 1984.[1]
