Join Northumberland National Park’s Walk to Wellbeing Programme, it is the easy way to get out and get healthy in Northumberland National Park.
West Tynedale Health Walk Leaders have designed and are leading walks suitable for people wanting an easy introduction to the inspirational landscapes of Northumberland National Park.
Hareshaw Linn was once the site of an ironworks in the mid-1800s. As the walk takes us by the Foundry Farm, we pass through mounds made from the spoil of 70 ovens that once supplied coke to the ironworks.
We then walk into the ‘Linn’ proper. This is an ancient woodland with oak, hazel, elm and ash and also home to red squirrels, great spotted woodpeckers, and wood warbler.
Walking over several bridges where we will see Douglas Firs planted by the Victorians as well as a Victorian ‘bandstand’ built for picnics, music and storytelling. Finally the walk takes us to the stunning waterfall which depth and dampness gives the feel of an ancient rainforest. Ideal conditions for the 300 species of mosses, liverworts and lichens. We then follow the same route back to the walk start.
