Lotties Wood

This wood forms part of the Great North Forest and incorporates a mixture of wildflower meadows, a network of paths and rides, and a large area of new tree and shrub planting. Breathtaking views can be enjoyed across the countryside to the Cheviot hills and Tyneside. The land has been farmed for as long as people can remember. The site was named after Lottie Brabban, a local character who lived opposite the site and was a dairymaid at the farm. Areas of open space designated as wildflower meadow will be managed by controlled mowing and grazing.
