Borough & Scotch Gill Woods Nature Reserves (Northumberland)
Two ancient woodlands now nature reserves around Morpeth.
Take a walk along the riverside path at Scotch Gill. It is a great place to visit to spot otters, kingfishers, trout and to hear woodland birds such as spotted flycatcher, long tailed tit and jay.
The Ancient Woodland of Borough Woods Local Nature Reserve was once owned by the Abbey itself and is on the south bank of the River Wansbeck. There are footpaths throughout the woodland, including a circular route from the car park at High House Road.
