Easington is a village in the unitary authority of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England.

The village is situated on the A174 road 1 mile (1.6 km) east from Loftus, and inside the North York Moors National Park.

Easington's church, dedicated to All Saints, is Grade II listed. The church was built in 1888–89 by C. Hodgson Fowler in Decorated style, and incorporated fragments and remains of the previous church.[1][2][3]

The village public house, the Tiger Inn, was previously a building of the same name at the opposite end of the village.

The village had a railway station on the Esk Valley Line. The station was called Easington, the name changing to Grinkle after the local house and seat of the Baronets Palmer, Grinkle Park. The renaming was to avoid confusion with the station at the larger Easington, County Durham, also on the North Eastern Railway's network.

Palmer Baronetcy

The Palmer Baronetcy, of Grinkle Park in the County of York and of Newcastle upon Tyne, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 31 July 1886 for Charles Palmer, a coal and shipping magnate and Liberal politician.[3]
