Station Town


Station Town is a village in County Durham which is immediately south of Wingate and 5 miles west of Hartlepool. The village originally grew in association with a colliery sunk at Heath View, but this soon closed due to flooding. Many residents worked at Wingate Grange Colliery, until this closed in 1962. The village derives its name from the railway station which was situated at the south end of Wingate.
