Brierton is a small village and civil parish in the borough of Hartlepool and the ceremonial county of County Durham, England. The village of Brierton, is itself situated a short distance to the south-west of Hartlepool, but there is also a suburban area of Hartlepool bearing the same name. This often causes confusion, which is why the suburban area is sometimes referred to as "Brierton Lane" to differentiate between the two separate areas. The village is located up the lane which is a cul-de-sac, and very rural. Close by to the suburb, was "Brierton Hospital" which was a fever hospital.
