walk summary

This is a wonderful woodland walk, which follows the Hareshaw Dene up to The Linn, a 30-ft waterfall. (Linn is the old English for waterfall).

During the first part of the walk you pass through the spoil heaps of the iron works before entering the woodland section which has been enjoyed by the locals since the end of the 19th century.

A wide range of fauna and wildlife is around you all the time, so it is certainly not a walk to be rushed.

The walk is mostly good under foot but it can get a little muddy in winter.

One of the best short walks we have in Northumberland. Put this on your list of walks to do in Northumberland.

shepherd's notes

- Passes through no farmland, so ideal for dogs.

- J P wrote ĎAs a seventy year old this walk was just the right distances for me, although I must admit I did find it a little tiring, but the enjoyment I got from it made up for the tiredness. I did this walk with my daughter and dog (who I must say enjoyed it best of all) We took lots and lots of photos of fungi along the way - it must have been the season for it. I didn't realise how many different sorts there were'.

We stayed in Bellingham this summer and bought a full set of Shepherds walks.

We enjoyed every single one that we did, but went back to to Hareshaw Linn a second time. A real gem and leaves us with great memories from our Summer holidays.

Thanks Shepherds Walks!
