Welcome to the Northumberland Uplands
Welcome to the Northumberland Uplands, a rich, cultural landscape running from the River Tyne in the south, through some of England’s deepest rural areas to the border with Scotland in the north.
The area covers the whole of Northumberland National Park, the dark skies of Kielder Water and Forest Park and the most visited and dramatic parts of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. This remote area is characterised by the moors and grasslands of the Cheviot Hills, with their ancient hill forts and pure rivers and the wild valleys of the North Tyne and Redesdale.
The Northumberland LEADER Programme is open for applications and will provide grants to small businesses, farmers, foresters and communities for projects that create jobs and grow the rural economy
