Activities - Things to do near Old High Shield


Haltwhistle is a market town situated 5 miles from Old High Shield next to the South Tyne river. The town has a market day on Thursday's. Geographically it claims to be the exact Centre of Britain.

During its turbulent past the area suffered from feuding and raiding from the Border Reivers and many buildings in the area were heavily fortified. Just behind the Market Square is Holy Cross Church, a fine example of early 13th century architecture with a Burne-Jones painted chancel roof and William Morris windows.

The town has a leisure centre and heated outdoor swimming pool in the summer months.
