Throckley is a village, located approximately 11 km west of Newcastle upon Tyne, in North East England. Hadrian's Wall passes through the village, its course traced by the village's main road, Hexham Road.
One of Throckley's more notable residents was William Brown, who was a consulting engineer in the 18th century, and part owner of Throckley Colliery at the time, responsible for the construction of many colliery waggonways throughout the North East of England.
Throckley also offers a supermarket, car shop, a range of hair salons, pubs, 3 Care homes for the Elderly, two churches, a solarium, butcher, funeral parlour, working men's club, an optometrist, medical surgery, a range of newsagents, a chemist, and one school. Throckley's economy is also boosted with the presence of an industrial estate which is home to Throckley Brickworks and Warmseal Windows, two of its many businesses. Throckley residents are supported by Save Throckley's Open Places and can be contacted via the STOP web site.
