Fulwell is an affluent area and former civil parish in the City of Sunderland and the English county of Tyne and Wear. The parish itself was abolished in 1928 as a result of the Sunderland Corporation Act, 1927, and the area incorporated into the former County Borough of Sunderland in County Durham. It borders the other former parishes of Seaburn, Southwick, Monkwearmouth, and Roker. Fulwell is located near the district border between Sunderland and South Tyneside. Fulwell ward, which includes Seaburn, had a population of 11,604 at the UK census of 2011.
Fulwell was primarily a farming village until it became part of the urban sprawl of industrial Sunderland in the nineteenth century.
