Oxhill, County Durham
Oxhill is a small village in County Durham, in England. It is located to the west of Stanley, on the bottom of the hill which leads up to Annfield Plain. Down the hill to the north are East Kyo and Harperley. Oxhill contains very little: a few households, a pub called The Ox and the main nursery school for the Stanley area.
Oxhill used to be the site of a major level crossing, allowing access from the former nearby Stanhope and Tyne Railway line to a shunting yard adjacent to nearby South Moor, where coal was loaded for transport to the River Tyne for export.
