Summer Weather!

Due to exceptionally high rainfall over the last 48 hours the River Till has flooded at Heatherslaw and covered part of the railway line.  As a result Heatherslaw Light Railway will not be running today (Friday 14th June).  As soon as the floodwater subsides a track inspection will be carried out and the railway will resume normal service as soon as possible.

Heatherslaw Cornmill, Tearoom, Visitor Centre, Gift Shop and Handmade at Heatherslaw are all open as usual.  Please check our social media for regular updates.

A unique and interesting opportunity for a part-time assistant miller has arisen at Heatherslaw Cornmill. The Mill is a working museum which still makes stoneground flour using traditional methods, supplying the adjoining gift shop and other local outlets with its flour and cereal products.

Report on the 25th Dawn Chorus Walk

Rosemary Bell has a wonderful knack of knowing these things. Nobody else (not even your host!) had appreciated that this was the 25th Dawn Chorus on Ford & Etal. Although we are all older, and few of us probably any the wiser about the birds we love and enjoy, this morning’s walk did at least show that, 25 years on, we are all still fit, can climb a very steep hill and can scramble over a stile.

Exhibitions at Lady Waterford Hall

Two small exhibitions of some very different work are now on display at the Lady Waterford Hall.  

The Lady Waterford Hall also serves as a village hall and is sometimes hired for private events.  One such event takes place on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th May, when the Hall will be closed to the public.

On Saturday 6th April the formal installation of Northumberland’s latest High Sheriff, Lady (Harriet) Joicey, of Etal, near Berwick-upon-Tweed took place in St Mary’s Church, Etal. Lady Joicey has taken on the role from her predecessor, Michael Orde. During the ceremony she appointed Alexander Dickinson as her Under-Sheriff and Reverend John Vilaseca as her Chaplain for her year in office.
