Northumberland National Park covers an area of more than 1,050 square kilometres between the Scottish border in the north to just south of Hadrian's Wall, and is one of the least populated and least visited of the National Parks. The park lies entirely within Northumberland and covers roughly a quarter of the county. In the north are the Cheviot Hills, a range of hills that mark the border between England and Scotland. Further south, the hills give way to areas of rolling moorland, some of which have been covered by forestry plantations to form Kielder Forest. The southernmost part of the park covers the dramatic central section of Hadrian's Wall, dating from the Roman occupation. The 10,000-year history of human habitation of the region is explored through the many archaeological sites, ranging from prehistoric monuments and Roman remains to Pele towers, constructed as a defence against Border Reivers. The park offers visitors a chance to explore these historical sites as well as numerous other opportunities for walking and hiking.Show more
