English: Annfield Plain is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated on a plateau between the towns of Stanley, 4 km (2.5 miles) to the north-east, and Consett, 8 km (5 miles) to the west. According to the 2001 census, Annfield Plain has a population of 3,569[1]. Along with much of the surrounding area, Annfield Plain's history lies in coal mining. While the industry collapsed in the 1980s and 90s, its effects are still apparent both in the landscape and in folk memory.
