About the neighbourhood
Easington Villages' origins are agricultural, as can be seen by the village green still at the heart of the village. On a clear day from the top of the village green you can see down the coast to almost Whitby in North Yorkshire. The adjoining village is Easington Colliery which as the name suggests grew up around the coal mine. The film Billy Elliott was shot in Easington Colliery and some of he backdrop from the film can still be seen today
How to get there
Visible on google maps as Tithe Barn Cottages. Post code SR83BS Located at the rear of Seaton Holme Manor House which is signposted from the nearby A19 main arterial route.
