Thropton, United Kingdom

Thropton is a small village in Northumberland, England, situated 1.9 miles (3.1 km) west of the village of Rothbury connected by the B6431 near the junction of the Wreigh Burn and the River Coquet. In the village is a fine stone bridge over the Wreigh Burn which was built in 1811. There is a haugh to the south of the village, and imposing views of Simonside, a long low crag south of the Coquet that runs between Rothbury and Thropton.

The post office closed in approximately 2018, likewise the small village shop in which it was located, and the adjacent vehicle repair garage also closed - as at November 2020 the land is currently vacant. A wider range of shops and facilities is available at Rothbury or further afield.
Thropton has two pubs: the Cross Keys and the Three Wheat Heads. The Three Wheat Heads is a 300-year-old coaching inn.
