Ellington is a small village in the civil parish of Ellington and Linton, on the coast of Northumberland, England. Ellington is 4 miles (6 km) from Ashington, 6 miles (10 km) from Morpeth and 20 miles (32 km) north of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Ellington was the site of the last remaining operational deep coal mine in North East England. Ellington Colliery closed on 26 January 2005. It was the last deep mine in the UK to extract coal from under the sea.

The name of the village is thought to derive from the Saxon meaning descendants of Ella. Today, Ellington is made up almost exclusively of private housing. It has one school, village shops, and one public house, the Plough Inn.
