Choppington is a village and civil parish in Northumberland, England. It is situated a short distance to the south-east of Morpeth, and north of Bedlington. It was at one time part of the three big mid-Northumberland collieries (Ashington, Bomarsund and Choppington).

The parish, which was formerly called North Bedlington, also includes the settlements of Bomarsund, Guide Post, Old Red Row, Stakeford, Sheepwash, Scotland Gate and West Sleekburn.

In 2017 Choppington was incorrectly reported as having the highest precept in England. The Parish Council's precept is in fact the 5th highest out of the 8 local councils located in south-east Northumberland (NCC 2017/18).

The Parish Council delivers one of the largest youth programmes in Northumberland[citation needed] and has been recognised for the quality of its local services[citation needed]. These services are directed by its local community through regular surveys, local forums and residents panels and, through participative budgeting.
