Little Benton is a small suburb of Newcastle upon Tyne, which holds two modern housing estates (Church Green and Haydon Grange) along with the site of Newcastle United's academy base. Little Benton's full list of amenities begins and ends at a Post Box. The closest provisions can be found at Four Lane Ends, one mile away.
In the 19th century, Little Benton was a hamlet. Until the 1980s, it housed nothing more than a farmer's field and a riding stable, which was demolished to make way for Haydon Grange, the newer of the two estates.
It was also a popular location for railway photographers taking pictures of trains on the East Coast Main Line.
