Historic village in the north of the National Park
The beautiful village of Kirknewton is made up of farm buildings and cottages.
It lies at the entrance to the College Valley in Glendale, on the very northern edge of the National Park boundary. Kirknewton is the only conservation area in Northumberland National Park. It was created in 1996 to protect and enhance the special architectural and historical interest of the area.
The Village Hall in Kirknewton is also a designated Dark Sky Discovery Site perfect for viewing the dark skies over the Northumberland National Park.
