Lynemouth is a village in Northumberland, England. The village is situated northeast of Ashington, and is in close proximity to the village of Ellington which is located to the north west. The village's location was decided by its close proximity to coal mines.
Sid Waddell the former sports commentator and television personality, who was known as "the voice of Darts", was born and raised in the village.
Also, the village can be seen in the 2000 film Billy Elliot. Lynemouth Cemetery doubles as Everington Cemetery, in which Elliot's mother is buried. The colliery, which was demolished in 2005, can be seen in scenes filmed at the cemetery.
