We drove to Bellingham on Sunday, it is only an hours drive and again the forecast wasn't very good. We thought we would get wet in Northumberland instead of the Lake District  :D We parked in the Hareshaw Linn car park and began walking up the burn.

Mini falls in Haresahw Burn


One of six bridges that cross the burn


It is just over a mile and a half to the main attraction, Hareshaw Linn, a very fine waterfall.

Another mini fall in Hareshaw Burn


It seemed longer than a mile and a half this walk. There are a few ups and down too but it is easy walking.

A rather crooked bridge 
 

Another bridge and mini waterfall 


Hareshaw Linn


It is a bit of a wow moment when you first see the waterfall. I've seen it before, a few times but I've not been here for about fifteen years.

On the return journey


There is one path in and one path out. The falls are in a steep sided gorge. I do remember climbing out of the gorge to get onto the Pennine Way once, must be twenty years ago. I remember it was a steep climb out and it involved trespassing for a short time. I can't think where we climbed up; it all looks impossibly steep yet we did do it. This is not a recommendation for others to do it!

A last look back at Hareshaw Linn


It is a lovely burn


Squeaky wanting some lunch


We sat near another seat to have some lunch before we continued back to the car park. We extended the walk by taking the Riverside Walk northward.

The River North Tyne


The walk along the river was a bit uninspiring to be honest.   

Except for this heron


We retraced our steps after a mile and a half. We wondered where St Cuthbert's Well was, it was marked on the map as Cuddy's Well and it was signposted near the village. We'd not seen it when we left the village earlier.                     

St Cuthbert's Well   


We saw it as we returned to the village. Our route was Hareshaw Linn Car park - Hareshaw Linn - Riverside Walk north - Hareshaw Linn car park. 6.2 miles 160m ascent.

Thanks Karl, beefy, ridge and vg

saw a redstart family just below Hareshaw Linn

I think the birds were all on holiday when we were there, we didn't see or hear many on the walk.

We thought they must all have been visiting peoples gardens so they could be counted for the RSPB's garden watch  ;)

Another "off the beaten track" report  :)


You can't beat a good waterfall walk on a soggy day.  Cheers for posting  O0
