Cassop-cum-Quarrington is a civil parish in the City of Durham district of County Durham, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 4,735.

The parish covers a number of settlements:
* Bowburn
* Cassop
* Old Cassop
* Old Quarrington
* Parkhill
* Tursdale

Unlike the ecclesiastical parish of Cassop-cum-Quarrington with Bowburn, the civil parish does not include Quarrington Hill.

The civil parish was created in 1887 from the townships of Cassop and Quarringon with boundary changes in 1946 and 1953 (the latter changes moving much of the newly built Bowburn Estate into the parish from Whitwell House).

The parish was divided into two wards from the May 2007 elections. The division between the two is marked by the A1(M) motorway.

* East Ward - consisting of Bowburn and Tursdale will elect 8 councillors
* West Ward - consisting of Cassop, Parkhill, Old Cassop and Old Quarrington will elect 4 councillors.

In 2007 12 Labour Party Candidates were elected unopposed as Parish councillors.
