A nineteenth century description

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Ingleton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"INGLETON, a township in Staindrop parish, and a chapelry, partly also in Heighington parish, Durham. The township lies 2¾ miles N of Gainford [railway] station, and 7 SSW of Bishop-Auckland. Acres: 813. Real property: £1,796. Population: 300. Houses, 75. The manor belongs to the Duke of Cleveland.
"The chapelry was constituted in 1845. Post town, Staindrop, under Darlington. Rated property: £3,455. Population: 667. Houses: 147. The property is divided among a few. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Durham. Value: £300. Patron: the Vicar of Staindrop. The church is modern, and has a belfry. There is a village school. Charities, £10."

Ingleton was originally a township in the ancient parish of Staindrop in County Durham. It was also a chapelry in the parish of Heighington. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 it was part of Barnard Castle Rural District. Between 1974 and 2009 it became part of the larger Teesdale non-metropolitan district. Since 2009 County Durham has been a unitary authority.
