Pallion  County Durham


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Pallion like this:

PALLION, a railway station in Durham; on the Sunderland and Durham railway; near the river Wear, 2 miles W N W of Sunderland. Pallion House is the seat of the Fenwicks. The name Pallion is a corruption of Pavilion.

The location is that of Pallion station, and the name "Pallion" appears just below this on the modern 1:50,000 map. Additional information about this locality is available for Sunderland
