Walltown Country Park
Walltown Country Park lies on the line of Hadrian’s Wall, near the village of Greenhead.
45 years ago, this site was a working quarry, where the hard whinstone was blasted with dynamite to provide road stone for the expanding road network of the early 20th Century. After it closed in 1976, the quarry was filled in and landscaped, planted with trees and flowers, and today is a haven for wildlife and nature.
It is a place to relax, watch wildlife and feed the ducks, but you can also find adventure in its meadows and woodlands and get a real taste of the wild!
Please note: Swimming is not permitted at Walltown Country Park. Hidden hazards and extreme low water temperatures can be fatal. Please be responsible and consider your safety and the safety of those around you.
