Redesdale is a remote upland area in the wild heart of Northumberland. The Rede catchment stretches from where the river rises at Carter Bar on the English-Scottish border to its confluence with the North Tyne at Redesmouth.
This land was once a lawless frontier where families on both sides of the border, the Border Reivers, raided each other’s lands, stealing, destroying property and perpetuating violent blood-feuds for generations. Today this area is one of the most peaceful parts of all England where birds and animals thrive and people can discover a spectacular upland landscape and the stories it holds.
