Harehill and St. Mary (Volapük:Lievalubel e Sakudan jiel Mariad) or commonly referred to as simply Harehill is a Special Municipality of the Republic of Wensleydale located approximately 55 km North West of the republic's claimed borders in County Durham. It is named after the two geographically separate enclaves which it consists of: one being Harehill farm, a farm in Ludworth and the the second smaller enclave being located near St. Mary's church, Easington.

Harehill and St. Mary's acts as the de facto capital of the Republic of Wensleydale due to the fact that it falls under full control of the republic, whereas control over the proclaimed mainland is very weak. Furthermore, the national legislature and the stockpile of the Wensleydalian Liberation Army are located here. It was formally an extraterritorial base, however on the 12 January 2015 the National Assembly unanimously voted in favour of making it a Special Municipality - meaning that it is now considered part of the republic's sovereign territory, despite not being part of the mainland.

It even has its own symbolism to represent it specifically in national and international affairs, with the Vinnland flag being used as the unofficial flag of the area.

Harehill is the largest of the two geographically separate regions which constitute Harehill and St. Mary's and the home of the national legislature. Consisting of mainly grassland with several sheds caravans and barns, it is 35,000 square meters in size. A very small military stockpile is located here, consisting of a semi-automatic shotgun and an air rifle.

Saint Mary's

St. Mary's is the personal residence of the President Robert Garside, it is much smaller than Harehill, however is home to a much larger military stockpile as well as all national documents and national memorabilia such as the first Wensleydalian republican flag. It is named after the nearby Church of St. Mary.
