Helmington Row is a village in County Durham, England situated between Crook and Willington.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Helmington Row from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "HELMINGTON-ROW, a township in Brancepeth parish, Durham; on the river Wear and the Weardale railway, 4 miles N of Bishop-Auckland. Acres: 1,244. Real property: £14,158; of which £10,158 are in mines, £78 in quarries, and £135 in railways. Population in 1851: 1,182; in 1861: 3,469. Houses: 655. Coal mining is largely carried on, and has been much extended. The township is a meet for the Cleveland hounds."
Helmington Row was originally a township in the ancient parish of Brancepeth in County Durham. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 until 1937 it was part of Auckland Rural District. In 1937 it was absorbed into the newly-formed urban district of Crook and Willington.
