Blanchland has been called one of the most perfect villages of England, and few travellers who drop from the wild moorland around it down into this wooded glen of the Derwent, would dispute the label. Features include a medieval gatehouse, a 19th century stone bridge and the remains of the abbey which dates from the 12th century.
