Celebrating and protecting
the rich cultural
heritage, landscape
and wildlife of
Redesdale.

Working with local people in the Rede Valley, we have successfully secured an award of £1.8 million from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, to celebrate Redesdale’s rich cultural heritage and to protect and enhance the area’s landscape and wildlife.

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.
