Horsley Parish Council

Horsley Parish

The Parish of Horsley is situated in one of the most scenic parts of East Tynedale and forms part of a World Heritage Site.  There are outstanding views of the Cheviots, Simonside and the North Pennines from Horsley Hills. 

An extensive network of public rights of way and quiet lanes through open spaces and mixed woodlands, provide the horse rider, walker and cyclist great opportunities for exercise, peace and relaxation.  A large scale map is on show in the front porch of the Hearth Arts Centre in Horsley Village. 

The main settlement within the parish is Horsley Village.  This village is steeped in history.  Many of the buildings have strong architectural features and are of great historical significance.  At the Hearth in Horsley several 17th and 19th century listed buildings around the village church have been restored and converted into the art and music centre you see there today. 

The two village public houses were former coaching inns.  Roman-British remains and antiquities from the medieval period can be found around the village and parish.  Spital is the site of a medieval hospital and spa and there are many buildings of historical significance at the tiny hamlet of Welton including a pele tower. 

You will always receive a warm welcome in this beautiful Northumberland village.
