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!

The bronze plaque (in two parts) with the names of all the fallen service personnel from the Breamish Valley was recently cast at the foundry and delivered by Robbie Burn (Project Lead) to the stonemason for fitting.

BBQ 2018 snaps

The Community BBQ organised to celebrate the recent Breamish Hall fundraising success went ahead in sweltering weather in the Powburn Community Garden on Saturday 7 July 2018.

As this was also the same afternoon as the mighty England football team were playing their quarter final game of the World Cup against Sweden, Sid Smailes had managed to hook up a TV, so no one who was interested missed out.
