Hareshaw Linn



The Linn (an old English word for waterfall) is a 9 metre waterfall in the village of Bellingham in Northumberland. We started our walk from an area that was once the site of an iron works in the 1800’s, passing old disused mine shafts and climbing the path in a deep and damp woodland that had the feel of an ancient rainforest.


Walking back through the village we found yet more running water in the form of St Cuthbert’s Well, an ancient holy well  – its clear, pure, natural spring water a contrast to the brackish marsh water of the nearby River Tyne.
