Great Stainton


Great Stainton is a small rural village in the borough of Darlington in the ceremonial county of County Durham, and to the west of Stockton-on-Tees. The village used to be known as Stainton-le-Street (C13th) because of the major Roman road which is thought to have ran through the area.[1] The village only became known as Great Stainton from the 17th century onwards. Great Stainton is also a parish, incorporating the nearby hamlet of Elstob; the parish church, All Saints Church, has a history going back to at least the 12th century. The village pub, the Kings Arms, dates from the 18th century.
