About the location
Wylam 2 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 8 miles; Corbridge 10 miles.
Heddon-on-the-Wall, situated north of the River Tyne, sits, as the name suggests, on the line of the old Hadrian’s Wall, and there is a section still visible at the edge of the village. Once the centre for quarrying and coal mining, this lovely village is now surrounded by farms and open countryside and is located on the side of the old “Military Road” which once formed part of the main road from Newcastle to Carlisle. Just along the road is the village of Wylam, the birthplace of George Stephenson, one of the early pioneers of the railway industry, and also the lovely town of Corbridge, which was a traditional crossing point over the Tyne and has history dating back to Roman times. Today, the town is noted for its array of small shops. Just a little further on is the Tyne Valley town of Hexham with its Abbey, Old Gaol and old town centre. The vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its many pubs, shops, eateries, museums and other attractions is within driving distance and has something for everyone. Heddon-on-the-Wall is an ideal base for exploring this part of Northumberland.
