Harlow Hill round

A few weeks ago, we decided to take ourselves out to an area of Northumberland that we hadn’t been to before, and found ourselves exploring the area around Harlow Hill. I’ve driven past this place countless times on my way up to Kielder, but never actually stopped to explore.

After checking out the OS maps, Johan stumbled upon a disused airfield which looked worth exploring, so off we went.

The walk itself was eerily quiet, with barely anyone around. And most of the footpaths were disused and overgrown, which made it feel like a proper little adventure. We made our way to the airfield, to find that it is now being used as a MOD base and is inaccessible. But it was still pretty cool to wander around the outside and have a peak.
