Edmondsley is a small village in County Durham, England. It is situated a few miles south-west of Chester-le-Street, near the villages of Craghead and Sacriston.

Coal mining once provided the village's main source of employment, but the last mines in the area had closed by the mid-1980s.

Edmondsley has one primary school, and a Post Office. Until recently there was also a public house, the Fleece, but this closed in 2007.

Notable people[edit]

The professional footballer and trade unionist Thomas Burlison, Baron Burlison (1936–2008) was born in Edmondsley.[2]
