Local History: Broomley and Stocksfield

  • Description

    "The parish of Broomley and Stocksfield lies in south Northumberland on the south bank of the River Tyne. It is divided in two by the Stocksfield Burn, which runs off the watershed near Minsteracres to the River Tyne at Stocksfield. Stocksfield is the largest settlement in the parish, stretching as it does from the banks of the River Tyne up the Stocksfield Burn. The name Broomley derives from the broom that grew there; and Stocksfield seems to mean `field by, or marked by, the posts.'..."
