About Ingram

Ingram is a small picturesque village on the Breamish river in the Cheviots on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, and as part of Northumberland Dark Sky Park, it has been designated as a Dark Sky Discovery Site - a place where light pollution is low and therefore it is ideal to view the night sky stars.

The village makes a great base for exploring the area from, and there is plenty to see such as the nearby hillforts of Brough Law and Cochrane Pike where you can see the remains of 4 stone huts, and nearby is also the prehistoric settlement of Greaves Ash. In the village you will find St Michael's All Angels Church, which is an 11th century church building with plenty of interesting history, and a short walk away (1.5 miles) is the stunning waterfall of Linhope Spout with its bottomless pool. This makes an excellent place for a picnic, and you may even catch a glimpse or two of the Red Squirrel scurrying around the nearby forest.

There is a family run cafe in the village serving drinks and meals, and you will find free car parking at the edge of the village, beside the bridge.

At the National Park Visitor Centre in the village you will find plenty of information about the Northumberland National Park including an archaeology exhibition about the history of the Breamish Valley. The centre also contains information on trails and walks.
