Northumberland is one of the least populous counties in England. This means that there are places to go to get away from the crowds, even on the warmest summer’s day. This includes areas such as the Cheviot Hills, which straddle the border between England and Scotland. Wild and rugged, it is a landscape steeped in history; until the seventeenth century it was a lawless land, roamed by the Border Reivers.
The photos in this gallery are a celebration of the wilder side of Northumberland, its moorland, woodland, and high hills.
