Broxfield is the name of a small area of farms in Northumberland, England, off the B1340 road. The land formed a civil parish in Alnwick Rural District until 1955, when it was incorporated into the parish of Rennington. Historically it was part of the ancient parish of Embleton.

"BROXFIELD, a township in Embleton parish, Northumberland; 2 miles NNE of Alnwick. Acres: 315. Population: 27. Houses: 5."
