From such inconspicuous beginnings to such a powerful thirst-quenching flow:
|the river North Tyne at Bellingham Rectory at the edge of the glebe paddock|
Between Bellingham and Charlton
On upriver beyond Lanehead
Near Smalesmouth continuing towards Falstone
The North Tyne held back by the dam above Yarrow...
...resulting in the creation of Kielder Water...
...and it's a long way on towards Kielder village
The first glimpse of the hills in which the river rises
The North Tyne at Butteryhaugh
...and a little further on up at Kielder where it's more of a burn.
Meandering near Ravenshill
Somewhere in this boggy ground...
or this ditch?
This seems to be the nearest I can get to the source...
...and so I filled my water bottle here.
