Hesleden is a village in County Durham, England. It is situated to the south of Peterlee. It has a large pond situated at the bottom next to the Hart to Haswell Walkway. Hesleden also has a park and Dene to walk through and explore.
Hesleden was named Hesleden from the two words combined, Dene and Hesle which is from "hazel".
Hesleden has one club, having seen the Calf public house and the Conservative club recently close, and a youth club which is open on a Monday from 6.00pm till 9.00pm for the age group of 7 to 11 and open on Wednesday from 6.00pm till 9.00pm for the age group of 11 to 18. It also has a post office/shop, which is probably the main attraction.
