Staining is a village and civil parish in Lancashire, England, situated on a coastal plain called the Fylde. it is close to the seaside resorts of Blackpool and Lytham St Annes, as well as the market town of Poulton-le-Fylde. In the 2001 United Kingdom Census, the parish had a population of 2,312. Historically, the village was part of the township of Hardhorn-with-Newton. Now the hamlet of Newton is part of the civil parish of Staining; Hardhorn belongs to Poulton-le-Fylde.
At the time of the Norman Conquest of England, Staining was part of the hundred of Amounderness, in the possession of Earl Tostig, the brother of King Harold II. Tostig died at the Battle of Stamford Bridge and his lands were subsequently taken over by the Normans. Between 1069 and 1086 William the Conqueror gave Amounderness to Anglo-Norman baron Roger the Poitevin. Staining was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Staininghe. The village was estimated in that survey to contain six carucates of land.
Historically, Staining, as part of the township of Hardhorn-with-Newton, was in the ecclesiastical parish of Poulton-le-Fylde, in the hundred of Amounderness, an ancient division of the historic county of Lancashire. Today, Staining is a civil parish, governed by a parish council.
Staining is represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom as part of Fylde. It elects one MP by the first past the post system of election. Since the 2010 general election, Fylde has been represented at Parliament by Conservative MP Mark Menzies. The parish is also part of the North West England constituency of the European Parliament.
