Witton Park is a traditional village with some heritage. It evolved during the industrial revolution and was the western terminal for the Stockton to Darlington railway and played a major part in the growth of the iron industry during the 19th century. In more recent times it has undergone significant regeneration with a number of housing schemes having been developed which have added to the already vibrant community. The neighbouring towns and cities of Bishop Auckland, Darlington, Durham and Newcastle provide a broad range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities and have excellent links with the major commercial centres of the North East via the A68 and A1 (M). The East Coast mainline railway along with International airports at Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley offer further communications with the rest of the country. Many of the regions renowned tourist attractions can be found within a short drive beyond which are the delights of North Yorkshire, the Lake District, Northumberland and the East Coast.
