Over the weekend, heavy rainfall caused severe damage to the walking route to Hareshaw Linn in Bellingham, Northumberland.
The Northumberland National Park Authority has closed the route due to landslides and fallen trees, and is advising people not to visit until further notice.
Margaret Anderson, Senior Ranger at the Northumberland National Park Authority, stated that temporary signage has been put in place to inform visitors that the route to the waterfall is currently inaccessible due to the ongoing rainfall in the area.
“We understand Hareshaw Linn is a popular walking route with both local residents and visitors to Northumberland National Park however the route must be closed for everyone’s safety,”
Anderson said. “Everyone should be mindful of the risk of further landslips. Our staff and volunteers will be monitoring the location and we thank everyone for their cooperation.”
The Northumberland National Park Authority will be providing further updates on their social media channels, but it is expected that the path to Hareshaw Linn waterfall will remain closed for the immediate future.
Visitors are advised to check for updates before attempting to visit the site.
