This page includes Stocksfield, Brand End, and the Painshawfield Estate/New Ridley Road areas.
Stocksfield is a village situated on the A695 to the south of the River Tyne. Branch End and the Painshawfield Estate are connected areas further up the valley side, also on the A695, and now fall within the Stocksfield boundary.
Stocksfield grew around the railway, and still has a station on the Tyne Valley Line, which runs between Newcastle and Carlisle. Additionally, a half-hourly bus service connects Stocksfield with Hexham and Newcastle, ensuring the village is well connected by transport links.
