Hareshaw Linn, Northumberland National Park.


Hareshaw Linn, Northumberland National Park. 

A wooded valley & series of waterfalls (Linn means waterfall)  in the Northumberland national park, near the village of Bellingham which was established in the 12th Century when St Cuthbert’s Church was first consecrated.
In the 19th Century it was a centre for iron. Hareshaw Linn was the site of two blast furnaces established in 1833 . It once had 70 coke ovens, 24 large roasting kilns for calcining the iron ore,  coal stores, a blacksmiths shop, wagon shed, stables and stores.The iron works were in  production until 1848.A decade later the plant was auctioned and many of the buildings demolished.
Nature has made a full recovery from all the industrial activity. Today Hareshaw Linn is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), designated for its rare ferns and lichen. Over 300 different types of mosses, liverworts and lichen can be found.It is also home to red squirrel, great spotted woodpecker, wood warbler, spotted flycatcher, badger and daubenton’s bat.
