At present the swing bridge is damaged - the team will be restoring it ASAP

Here at Hadrian's Wall Country Group, we're dedicated to maintaining our sites, including Hadrian's Wall and Bellister Estate, for you to enjoy. We conduct regular surveys to monitor wildlife, restore essential parts of the sites and provide an events programme that's sure to get you outdoors.

Keep up to date with what's going on via twitter NTHadriansWall, facebook HadriansWallNT and now flickr hadrianswallnt.

Our ranger

Whether it's maintaining the site for visitors, working on projects or making repairs, Allen Banks ranger James Howard is always thinking of new ways to improve the site, not to mention being busy getting involved with the volunteers and events.

We work with lots of local businesses to provide excellent opportunities for our volunteers, to help host fantastic events and make the properties the best they can be for our visitors. Here are just a few of our partners: Pinpoint Adventure, English Heritage, Felling Fly Fishing, North Pennines AONB, Newcastle Climbing Centre and North Tyne Valley.

Projects

Explore Allen Banks with the help of our visitor welcome boards

To help make your visit to Allen Banks just a little easier, James Howard and the team recently finished work on a new 'Visitor welcome point' where you will find information about the property and a helpful map.

Volunteers

A lot of our conservation and maintenance work couldn't be carried out without the help of our volunteers.

It's a wonderful way of meeting new people, getting involved with exciting projects and helping to conserve the environment. Whatever your interests or skills, there's something for everyone.
