Brizlee Tower and Hulne Park
Tue 26th June 2012
What an evening, who could have asked for better weather.
After meeting in Alnwick market square we head off through historic Alnwick to Hulne Park, which is the only remaining park of three that surrounded Alnwick and is owned by The Duke of Northumberland.
The stunning walled park was a true oasis, being peaceful and on sock a lovely evening what better place to be.
After discussing the land management of the park we climbed up to Brizlee Tower, a Grade 1 listed folly set up high on the park. It stands 26 metres high and it has recently been restored.
After visiting the tower we also visited the created new burial ground for the family, with its 12ft high highly ornate gates. From here we had great views looking north over to the Cheviot Hills.
We then dropped back down and made our way back into Alnwick just in time for the chip shop.
A great walk was had by all. Thanks very much.
