Description

Join us our guided walk to discover the Natural History of Hareshaw Linn.

Our beautiful woodland walk follows the Hareshaw Dene up to The Linn, an old-English word for a waterfall. Learn about the fascinating industrial history of this remote area that was once home to blast furnaces and coke ovens.

Our walk passes the remains of the dam that supplied the water to the works below before we enter a Site of Special Scientific Interest, (SSSI) designated for its rare lichens and ferns and home to red squirrels.

Discover the best routes in the Northumberland National Park on our Volunteer Guided Walks. Get outside, enjoy your time walking and leave the planning and navigation to us; it’s what we’re best at.

Nobody knows the best places to walk in the National Park like our volunteers so you’ll never be short of local history, stories, features and viewpoints.

Places for this walk should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment and in the event we need to contact you to cancel or postpone due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Lace up your boots and enjoy a great day outside.
