Wildflowers of Barrowburn, Northumberland


Thursday 30 June, 1-3pm

We will enjoy an easy walk through upland hay meadows in the beautiful Coquet valley to look for and identify wildflowers and pollinating insects. We will also learn how the meadows are managed. Our leader is a Northumberland National Park Ranger and knows this location well. This activity will involve a short walk in and around the fields with a slight gradient on made up tractor road with some loose stones at times.

Meet in the National Park carpark at Wedder Leap, which is on the left-hand side of the road just before you reach Barrowburn (grid ref NT866104 or nearest postcode NE65 7BP).

Note that there is a good tearoom at Barrowburn!

Leader: Shaun Hackett (National Park Ranger)
