North Blyth is a small settlement in south-east Northumberland, England. It is located to the south east of the village of Cambois and to the north of the town of Blyth on the north eastern side of the River Blyth harbour.

It comprises six streets and a Working men's club which was recently re-opened as a microbrewery brew bar by the Northumberland Brewery. It has a railhead serving the Alcan Lynemouth Aluminium Smelter bauxite sea terminal[1] as well as a rail terminal at the nearby Battleship Wharf,[2] part of the Port of Blyth operating division of the Blyth Harbour Commission, an independent statutory trust established in 1882.
