North Wrangham near Wooler
This permissive footpath follows the northern boundary of Hare Crags to an area of cup and ring marked rocks. These were made around 4000 years ago, probably in the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age periods. The marks along Hare Crags are one of the largest groups to be found in-situ and are a Scheduled Ancient Monument. These examples may have served as a route demarcation or land division symbols as the site commands good views. They may have also had some religious function, as Cup and Ring marks are often associated with burial and standing stones. Along the northern section of the path look out for lapwing, snipe and geese during the winter and spring.
