Northumberland National Park Foundation

Northumberland National Park and its rich landscape, heritage and culture, is a unique and special place.

Every inch of it leaves you inspired to explore and discover the unique qualities which make it so special. It is a place of remote and rugged beauty; from the Roman frontier at Hadrian’s Wall to the rolling hills and valleys in The Cheviots, the Park is scarred from battle but alive with nature as far as the eye can see.

Northumberland National Park Foundation is a registered charity which aims to safeguard the future of the North East’s most unspoilt and iconic landscapes. The Foundation supports projects which promote, assist and encourage the protection, conservation and enhancement of the Park, and initiatives which connect people with nature through activities and learning experiences.

Northumberland National Park Foundation’s priorities in 2022 include projects and initiatives which focus on the environment, climate change and access to green space for improved health and wellbeing.


Through your support, we can conserve and enhance Northumberland National Park for everyone to enjoy.


It supports activities which promote, assist and encourage the protection, conservation and enhancement of the Park. The Foundation is also interested in activity which opens up the Park to enable a wide range of people to explore and enjoy it. This includes volunteering, education and learning opportunities for people of all ages.

The Foundation is currently helping to raise the remaining capital needed to ensure The Sill,  Northumberland National Park’s flagship National Landscape Discovery Centre at Once Brewed, on Hadrian’s Wall, reaches its full potential.
