Stainton and Thornton Parish Council

  • Description

    Official Website of the Parish Council. Includes some information on history: "Stainton is one of the few areas within the boundaries of modern-day Middlesbrough to have been named in the Domesday Book of 1086. It has been a settlement since pre-Saxon times while its name reveals it to have been an area of old Norse (Viking) influence with street names such as Meldyke and Kelgate. The first vicar of Stainton was appointed in 1247. The present Church of St.Peter and St.Paul is Grade 2* listed and was built on a 12th century foundation but has been altered and added to over the years to suit the fashion and requirements of the times. The church registers are continuous from 1551...."
