Cocklepark Tower is in the hamlet of Cockle Park, Northumberland, England some 4 miles (6 km) to the north of Morpeth.

This was a three-storied tower-house which was built in the 15th century. It was later extended by the addition of a domestic building. It was in use until recently[when?] but it is now[clarification needed] unsafe. The University of Newcastle is planning to develop this building as part of the overall development of Cockle Park farm into the Centre for Renewable Energy from Land (CREEL) Creel home page.
