Cockerton is a suburb of Darlington, a town in County Durham, England. It is situated immediately to the north-west of Darlington town centre, close to Mowden, Branksome, West Park and Faverdale. The Cocker Beck, a small stream, runs through the area and empties into the town's River Skerne via a string of valleyed parks which were donated as recreational areas for the town in the early 20th century. This area, although not part of Cockerton, is adjacent to and socially linked to Cockerton, and is known as "The Denes".
