Welcome to the Shincliffe Parish Council website

Shincliffe Parish is a small collection of picturesque villages located just outside of Durham City. Steeped in mining heritage and surrounded by agriculture and forestry, this makes it a beautiful place to live, or to visit and explore, with various walks throughout.

The Parish Council meetings are held in either Shincliffe School or St. Mary’s Church Hall. The meetings calendar can be found here. The agenda for the meetings are posted on the noticeboards or can be found on the website here; parishioners are extremely welcome to attend.

Please browse our website for more information on upcoming events and feel free to contact us with any queries or concerns.
