Stocksfield Branch End is opened around 1911 by the North Eastern Banking company and operated as a sub branch to Hexham.  It lies to the east of the village of Stocksfield, between Hexham and Newcastle upon Tyne, close to the Carlisle to Newcastle Railway.  Apart, sadly, from it suffering a slight lack of charisma, there is very little else that we know about the branch here, except for the details given below in the Branch Information section, and we have no staff details.   Branch end is one of three sub branches to Hexham over the years, the others being at CORBRIDGE and RIDING MILL. Stocksfield is the only one to merge with Barclays in 1969 - but even then it is closed within a couple of years…
