Hazlerigg (often misspelled Hazelrigg[1]) is a village and civil parish north of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne in Tyne and Wear, England. It is about 5 miles (8.0 km) north of the city centre, on the A1. It is split between Newcastle upon Tyne and North Tyneside, each side of the A1 being a different district. The parish council administer the Newcastle side, whereas the area located in North Tyneside is unparished. Much of the Newcastle Great Park development is within the area administered by the Hazlerigg Parish Council. Located in the village is a Post Office, fish & chip shop, beauty salon, a hairdresser, a garage, a showroom selling kitchen and bathroom furniture and a social club that is now open under new management. In spite of having a population of 1,053,[2] and almost 800 homes, Hazlerigg has never had a pub. The village Community Centre is located at the west of the village next to the 'show field', formerly the site of the annual village Gala. A football field is located between Hazlerigg and the neighbouring village of Brunswick. Although Brunswick is only a 2-minute walk from Hazlerigg the journey takes much longer by car as there is no direct road linking the two villages, as they were once separated by a railway line. The shortest journey by road is two miles via Wideopen.

Hazlerigg was once the site of a colliery, which was in use from 1892 to 1964.[3] The village prospered due to the export business thriving within it. Local houses for miners were built and they founded the village seen today by visitors and inhabitants.


The nearest school is Hazlewood Community Primary School, of which most of the village children attend until Year 6. There once was a school located in the heart of Hazlerigg, but it was demolished in 1993.
