  • This is one of the top five iconic trees in the UK and the most photographed. Approach from either direction affords fabulous views of the Northumbrian countryside.

Just a bit of warning, car park costs £3 ph and you have to decide at the spot how long you are planning to be there. If you are a novice in hiking I'll recommend you to pay for 3 hours, like that you won't have to rush
