Broomley and Stocksfield has been the name of the civil parish since 1866 (but it is quite often simply known as Broomley). The two main settlements are described separately in Wikipedia.

Stocksfield

the text in this section is based on an article in Wikipedia

Stocksfield is a small, yet sprawling commuter village situated close to the River Tyne, about 14 miles (23 km) west of Newcastle upon Tyne and 10 miles (16 km) east of Hexham in the southern part of Northumberland, England. There are several smaller villages and hamlets surrounding Stocksfield, including New Ridley and Old Ridley (not parts of the civil parish of Ridley which is 20 miles to the west), Broomley, Hindley, Bywell, Mickley, and Hedley on the Hill.

Broomley and Stocksfield were originally townships in the ancient parish of Bywell St. Peter. They became a single civil parish in 1866, and in 1887 absorbed Apperley, Stocksfield Hall (which had been a separate township and parish and a seat of the Viscounts Allendale) and parts of Mickley. It remains a civil parish into the 21st century.
