Causey Park Bridge is a village in Northumberland, England. It is about 6 miles (10 km) to the north of Morpeth and a similar distance inland from the North Sea coast.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Causey Park from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"CAUSEY-PARK, a township in Hebburn [Hebron] parish, Northumberland; 5½ miles NNW of Morpeth. Acres: 1,117. Population, 101. Houses: 19. Causey-Park House is the seat of the Ogles; and was built in 1582."

Causey Park Bridge is a village in the township of Causey Park which was in the parochial chapelry and civil parish of Hebron (also known as Hebburn) within the ancient parish of Bothal. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Morpeth Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area transferred to Tritlington civil parish.
