This article discusses Easington, Northumberland. There is also a place named Easington in County Durham which is a much larger place and is a former colliery.

Easington and Easington Grange were two separate townships and civil parishes until 1955, but the following description from A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description for both townships from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"EASINGTON-GRANGE, a township in Belford parish, Northumberland; 1½ mile NE of Belford. Acres, 547; of which 126 are water. Pop., 71. Houses, 13."

Easington Grange has been redirected here. In 1955 the civil parish of Easington Grange was absorbed into Easington along with the civil parishes of Outchester and Spindlestone.
