Spectacular views await from the high escarpments of this timeless place.
Hepburn Wood captures the inherent qualities of Northumberland perfectly –broad, sweeping vistas and tranquil landscapes.
A walk along the forest road is a pleasant stroll on the old carriage drive built when Hepburn was a private estate belonging to neighbouring Chillingham Park.
A longer walk up the side of Hepburn Crag is marked by two sharp climbs, but you will be rewarded with stunning views from the top of the lofty sandstone escarpments. O
n the heather-clad natural vantage point of Hepburn Crag, the remains of a hill fort suggest people have inhabited this site for at least 4000 years. A second climb to the top of Ros Hill (National Trust) reveals a panorama containing seven Northumbrian castles.
