NORTHUMBERLAND NATIONAL PARK
NATIONAL PARKS & AONB'S IN HEXHAM, NORTHUMBERLAND
Ancient pre-history and the rare red squirrel exist alongside traditional lifestyles with a thriving culture. There are distinct characteristics within the landscape of the National Park. To the north there are the breathtaking rolling moors and grasslands of the Cheviot Hills, with their ancient hillforts and pure rivers. In the centre is the Upper Coquet Valley with the landmark Simonside Hills and the beautiful villages of Harbottle and Holystone. To the west are the valleys of the North Tyne and Redesdale, wild, inspiring and once home of the Border Reivers and still inhabited by red squirrels. In the south is the iconic ridge of the Whin Sill with Hadrian's Wall striding along its crest.
