Haltwhistle burn

 Haltwhistle burn and the Industrial heritage of Haltwhistle 

 The Haltwhistle burn runs from the military road down to Haltwhistle. There used to be a small train line to carry the coal from Cawfields quarry down to the main Tyne Valley railway line. Back in those days the burn must have been a hive of industrial activity. This is Cathy Smith who will introduce you to the burn.
