Thockrington


Thockrington is a remote hamlet in Northumberland, located about 2 miles south-west of Great Bavington and 5 miles north-east of Chollerton. Today the settlement consists of Thockrington Farm, a bungalow and the 12th century St Aidan's Church. However, it was once a more substantial settlement. In the 13th century it was recorded as part of the lordship of Prudhoe, and 18 taxpayers were recorded in 1377.[1] In the early 19th century there were  25-30 cottages and a few farms here. Then in 1847 a returning sailor reputedly brought cholera, and the village population was wiped out, and the houses were burnt[2] -some foundations are still visible. Today, National Cycle Route 10 passes through Thockrington.
