welcome to hepscott parish council
The civil parish of Hepscott lies south east of the market town of Morpeth in the county of Northumberland. It borders the industrial former coalfield area and the more agricultural parts of the County.
The main east coast railway runs through the parish and the AI trunk road is very close.
The Tyneside conurbation and Newcastle Airport are within a thirty minute drive by road making Hepscott a popular and convenient place to live.
In 2007 the parish was divided into two wards – Hepscott Parish ward (with five councillors) and Stobhill Manor ward (with two councillors). This reflected the development of a housing estate at Stobhill Manor.
There are approximately four hundred dwellings within the parish. Half are in the village nucleus. Over a quarter of them are in Stobhill Manor and Turner Square and the remainder are scattered working farms, farms with barn conversions or small hamlets such as Shadfen, Dunces Houses, Hepscott Manor, Catchburn, Barmoor and Coalburn.
The images at the top of the page show parts of the parish, as they were, about one hundred years ago. If you hover your mouse over an image it will show you the same location as it is today.
