Killingworth Village, sometimes known as "Old Killingworth", is a small village south of the modern town of Killingworth, and north of Forest Hall in North Tyneside, North East England.

St. John the Evangelist Church[edit]

The village church was designed by Bassett Keeling of London, and is faced with local stone, with bands of pink sandstone from a local quarry. It is surrounded by elm and sycamore trees, and ministers to a wide age-group including young families.

Public houses[edit]

There are two public houses in Killingworth Village: the Plough and The Killingworth Arms.
Killingworth Arms Football Club [1] is a Sunday league team, in the North East Sunday Football League Division D.
