On 1 February 2013, residents of Powburn gathered at the Plough Inn to consider the longstanding problem of speeding traffic through the village on the A697.
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!
