Jockey Shield

The Gelt river rises above the small hill village of Castle Carrock. Here you will find Jockey Shield and the RSPB bird reserve of Upper Geltsdale. There is a short walk down to the valley floor from the car park but you then have miles of walking and exploration ahead of you.

A short way upstream is a small waterfall and deep pool known to the locals as the swimming hole and very welcome it can be on a hot summer day.

Lambley and the Viaduct

The Lambley viaduct is a reminder of the Victorian era when large engineering features projects were a source of great pride. The small rural railway line between Haltwhistle and Alston was a vital link to bring mined ores down to the Tyne Valley and the Carlisle to Newcastle railway line.

Lanercost – two bridges

Lanercost, nestling in the Irthing Valley is a lovely location to explore. From the Abbey and tea room through to the beautiful walks along the river and then up to the Roman Wall there is plenty to see and do.

Haltwhistle burn

In the 18th and 19th centuries Haltwhistle was a substantial industrial town with mining forming the backbone of its success.There was an open face coal mine up at Cawburn up close to Hadrian’s Wall and from there a small guauge railway line ran down into the town. Nowadays the Haltwhistle burn through which it ran is a nature trail with some lovely sections to explore.
