Simonside Hills Rothbury Northumberland


Simonside Hills, Rothbury, Northumberland

The Simonside hills landscape overlooks the ancient market town of Rothbury in the Northumberland national park.
The area is a haven for wildlife and is the setting for a bronze age cemetery and hillfort.
Local legend has it that an evil race of dwarves called dueargars roam the hills enticing walkers and travellers to their deaths over cliff edges.

George Stephenson's birthplace Wylam Northumberland


George Stephenson's birthplace, Wylam, Northumberland.

The great Tyneside engineer George Stephenson was born in a modest miners cottage not far from the river Tyne.
The cottage was built among many others to house mining families who worked in nearby coal mines. The current footpath follows the course of the old wagon way from which the young Stephenson would have seen the coal wagons go by.
It was from these humble beginnings that Stephenson, "The Father of the Railways"  rose to become one of the greatest engineers in history.
Further photos & information of George and Robert Stephenson's impact on the North East can be seen here.

Seaton Sluice, Northumberland.


The village used to be called Hartley Pans because of the salt pans which where here as far back as 1236. The harbour was also used to export coal over many years.
The village of Seaton Sluice derived it's name from the sluice which was built by Sir Ralph Delaval to improve the harbour.
The historic Seaton Delaval hall is nearby.
