Just a five-minute drive west of Wooler, this wild area, owned by the Forestry Commission, allows you to get into the heart of the countryside.
It is a mixture of woodland and open ‘common’, knitted together by intriguing footpaths.
Two ponds lie at Wooler Common’s centre, reached by an easy access trail.

A town bus service will take you within 400 metres of the common at the edge of Wooler.
The last part of the journey is undertaken on foot along the public road access on to the common.
