Country Walk Summary

Briarwood Banks (Site C) near Haydon Bridge

Semi-natural ancient woodland is a relative rarity in Northumberland, the reserve at Briarwood Banks is probably one of the best examples in the county. The site straddles the valley of the Kingswood Burn – a small tributary of the river Allen. The easiest access to the site is over a newly built footbridge at Plankey Mill or by walking up through Allen Banks from the National Trust car park. There is a ford on the route which may be difficult in high water.
