Willington is a former-pit town in County Durham, Englandmarker. It is in the foothills of the Pennines and near the River Wearmarker close to Crookmarker and Bishop Aucklandmarker. Like many communities in the area, Willington's economy was largely based on coal mining. The closure of the colliery in 1967 therefore hit the town hard. Similarly to many former mining communities this is a blow that Willington has struggled to recover from.
