Lynemouth Civil Parish

The Civil Parish of Lynemouth is located on the south-east coast of Northumberland by the estury of the River Lyne. It is one of the smallest sized parishes in Northumberland. Historically Lynemouth was a township in the ancient parish of Woodhorn, with a population of 31 recorded in 1848. Then, in the early 20th century, the Ashington Coal Company purchased land here and established a mine and built a 'Model Colliery Village', inclusing housing and welfare amenities for the miners and their families. In 1921, there were only 1 farm and 4 houses in Lynemouth. But when Lynemouth Colliery began production in 1927, the settlement had grown to 500 houses.[1] The colliery was combined with Ellington Colliery in 1983, and was full closed in 1994.

The population of Lynemouth Civil Parish was 1,858 at the time of the 2011 Census.
