Howford, Acomb near Hexham

Outdoor Event, 2.30pm

At this well-known site, at the meeting of the Rivers North and South Tyne near Acomb, we should see a diversity of spring flowers: Toothwort Lathraea squamaria, Goldilocks Ranunculus auricomus, Yellow Star-of-Bethlehem Gagea lutea and Wild Daffodil Narcissus pseudo-narcissus. There are glorious spreads of Wood Anemone and not yet in flower will be Northern Bedstraw Galium boreale. Meet at Acomb. Parking is at the side of the A6079 on the wide cinder verge on the west side of the road, coming from Hexham it is about 100m before the minor crossroad (where the road on the right leads into the main part of the village). It is beside a sign ‘Colliery Yard Garage’ (grid ref NY927662).
