Eglingham

Eglingham Eglingham

From Branton head towards the A697 and cross over the main road taking the opposite minor road towards Beanley and Eglingham (pronounced Egling-jum). It is a pretty route full of birds, sheep, rhododendrons, a pack of hounds in kennels at Beanley and fantastic conker trees in Autumn. There is major hill at the half-way point, after which you are rewarded with some amazing views back towards the Cheviots and across to Bewick Moor. It is about 4½ miles to the village and where you can do a little tour using the local guide (at the cottage), take a look at the church and have lunch or a drink in the Tankerville Arms (pictured above).

The route is the same on the way back unless you want a longer route via Crawley Tower (a fortified farm house) taking you down a very steep hill into Powburn.
