A picturesque landscape of high hills, open moorland, gently rolling farmland and the scenic River Breamish!

BREAMISH VALLEY winds through the Cheviot Hills of north Northumberland, meandering through the Northumberland National Park. Home to a wide range of wildlife, trees and flowers, the ancient landscape also boasts numerous Neolithic and Bronze Age hillforts and burial sites.

As part of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, Breamish Valley is a stargazer's paradise: it has the clearest night skies in England!

And being just a few miles from the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of Northumberland's unspoilt coastline and beaches, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

Litter Picked!

Litter picked from A697

Following yesterday’s appeal for help to do a Litter Pick on the A697, Robbie Burn has sent the following message and photo.

The villagers of Powburn today took advantage of the A697 being closed for repairs. Nine people turned up and picked up litter from both sides of the road from Powburn to the Glanton junction. As you can see from the photo they have done a magnificent job.

Northumberland Snowdrops

Spectacular Northumberland snowdrops

It’s that time of the year again – when snowdrops appear seemingly everywhere along the Breamish Valley and throughout Northumberland.

The conditions seem to have been just right as there is a spectacular display of snowdrops this year.
