The Morpeth district lies in south central Northumberland. The western three-quarters of the district is predominantly agricultural with a widely scattered population. The eastern portion of the district forms part of the Northumberland Coalfield. Although deep mining has now ended within the district, the industry has left an indelible legacy on the landscape including former mining settlements such as Bedlington, Seaton Burn and Burradon. Communities such as Coxlodge, South Gosforth and Long Benton are now merged with the Newcastle upon Tyne conurbation to the south. The new town of Crammlington was developed in the 1950s from a small village. The ancient market town of Morpeth is an important commercial and market centre which, with County Hall, today is the administrative centre of Northumberland.
