High Pittington


High Pittington is a village in County Durham, located about 4 miles north-east of the city of Durham. The village extends into the hamlet of Hallgarth. The settlement of High Pittington developed in the 19th and 20th centuries in association with coal mining. In contrast, Hallgarth is much older; St Lawrence's Church here dates from the 12th century and was the parish church for the ancient Parish of Pittington. Today, High Pittington forms part of the Civil Parish of Pittington.
