Geocache Description:

Situated within Northumberland National Park between Henshaw Common and Black Fell.

There are many excellent trails to walk through the forest, which is home to a variety of birds and wildlife.

There are also some inaccessible areas that form part of the Border Mires Special Area for Conservation (SAC). Over the past 10,000 years they have developed in cool, wet conditions that are conducive to peat formation. The living part of the mire, dominated by Sphagnum Moss and specialist plants such as bog asphodel and cotton grass, is a thin layer over at least a two metre depth of peat formed from the partly decomposed remains of these plants. Some of the mires may have over 10 metres depth of peat.

Nearby is the Northumberland National Park Visitor Centre at Once Brewed. Here you can discover more about Northumbrian history and places to visit.

If you’re hungry, the Twice Brewed Inn next door does a very special mustard mash!

If you park near Scotchcoulthard, the walk will be about a mile and a half.

There is a way to drive there if you wish. When initially placed, the track indicating that it was 'Unsuitable for Motor Vehicles' had a steep-sided ford at the bottom, but that may have changed. There is another way and you will see the rocket using that route.
