Northumberland Rocks Walk

The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre, Bardon Mill, Hexham, Northumberland, NE47 7AN

31 Jul 2022, 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Delivered by NNPA

The event will start with a presentation in The Sill on the rocks and geological history of the area and how they have influenced the landscape.

We will then take our walk and see at first hand the rocks themselves and understand how they and geological processes have shaped the terrain. The walk, which involves some quite steep (though short) stepped ascents and descents, will provide opportunity to understand how different environments and changing climates in the past have moulded our region.

You will also be able to see majestic views of the local countryside and The Wall.
