Event description

Description

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.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks. If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival.

Lace up your boots and enjoy a great time outside.

Bellingham is 17 miles north of Hexham on the B6320. Take the Otterburn/Redesmouth road from the main street and turn left immediately after crossing stream (70 metres).

For those wishing to use GPS/Sat-Nav to find walk start points please note that, particularly in open-country, postcodes cover a large area, so, whilst the postcode will get you to the right general area, you will still need to follow the detailed directions to locate the actual Walk Start Point.
