Imaginatively created, restoring open cast mine to a visitor attraction. Sculptured landscape in the form of a reclining female figure. Many paths wind their way around the gorse, which rises to 300 feet. Once on the head, very interesting to be able to look down...More

I'm always looking for new places to walk my dogs. Northumberlandia is near where I live so I thought it'd be worth a visit. It's so depressing and dreary. There's no beautiful countryside just a man made structured walk. It's only a few miles drive...More

The idea of the sculpture walk is a good one, but you have to stay on the paths and there are no bins for litter/dog poo. That means it’s not great for dog walkers or small children. There is a reasonable cafe at the entrance/exit....More
