A new venture has started locally called Wild Dogs Outdoors. They organise guided walks with an expert in local history and archeology. One of the walks is run from Cawfields which is on Hadrian's Wall a short distance from us. For more information please click here.

It has its own unique history including a 13th century church with stained glass windows made by William Morris & Co. in 1872. The windows were the work of Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Maddox Brown and Philip Webb who were Pre-Raphelite artists.


There are many walks in and around Haltwhistle with two walking festivals a year.

A burn running through Haltwhistle has a spectacular walk through beautiful scenery.
