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!

IT’S AUTUMN! And that means misty mornings, soggy ground and a damp that often lasts all day.

Well, this morning was one of those days. But it’s not a bad day – it’s just different. The grey clouds and diffuse light lends a unique atmosphere to the Breamish Valley. And, this morning, I headed to the River Breamish, close to Bulby’s Wood. And I wasn’t disappointed…

County Cllr update

  • A697 undergoing programme of schemes to improve road safety between Powburn and Shawdonhill, consisting of signage and road marking improvements with any necessary vegetation clearance and gully clearing.
  • Speeding through Powburn village an issue of concern, with camera van visiting area. A vibration monitor had been installed in a residents house on main road through Powburn to measure noise level/vibration of passing traffic. The noise level had been analysed with no significant readings, suggesting the red strips outside the home are not causing vibration issues. A PV2 survey which monitors footpath and pedestrian movement to also be carried out.
