Village News

20 September 2020

Horsley village has a rare signpost according to an expert in this field of study. It is made of cast iron in the shape of a shield and painted in black and white colours. These signposts are only found in Northumberland and its borders. Several have been restored along the A696 road between Ponteland and Belsay. The Horsley sign indicates the mileage from the village to Carlisle, Hexham and Newcastle.

Many long distance cyclists and walkers on a staycation have been travelling through the village and calling in at the Hearth and the Lion and Lamb for hospitality. Most use the Hadrians Wall national route.
