Cock o' the North Roundabout is a roundabout just to the south of Durham on the A167 (former A1) where it meets the A177, a route into the city. It gets its name from a large pub which used to stand between the two arms to the north. The Cock o' the North closed in 2005 and was demolished in favour of new housing.

Signage at the junction advises northbound heavy vehicles to continue to the A690 (at Neville's Cross) for Durham, due to a 7.5T weight restriction further in on the A177.

The roundabout is slightly unusual in that northbound traffic on the A167 does not have to give way; instead the small amount of traffic wanting to make the sharp right turn from the A177 has to wait instead. This arrangement is reversed two roundabouts to the south on the A167, where traffic making a similarly sharp and uncommon right turn from the B6288 in Croxdale gives way to the southbound A167.
