English: Stainton is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated to the north east of Barnard Castle. Stainton Village has around 100 houses and although it is classed as a village by all residents it actually has no local amenities. It once had a public house, chapel, post office and a local shop, all of which are now private residences. Many of the properties are period properties and owned by older residents. Just across the road from Stainton Village is Broomielaw, once a picnic area and home to an old train station (now on private land) where Her Majesty The Queen Mother used to travel to get to Streatlam Castle.
