Washington is a town in the city of Sunderland local government district of Tyne and Wear, and part of historic County Durham. Washington is located geographically at an equal distance from the centres of Newcastle, Durham and Sunderland, hence it has close ties to all three cities. Washington Village, once located in open country, is now surrounded by Washington New Town but retains some of its older rural features and is quite picturesque. In times past the boundaries of the village were marked by neighbouring lakes called Birtley Lough and Washington Lough. The new town of Washington is divided into eighteen districts or 'villages', which were once labelled by numbers, but real names are now favoured. Eight of the districts in the town are built on the sites of existing villages, with the most historic being Washington village itself. The National Trust owned Washington Old Hall is located in Washington and is of great significance, as it was once the home to the ancestors of George Washington, the first president of the United States.
