Eight miles south of Wooler and ten miles northwest of Alnwick in Northumberland in north east England, approximately 40 miles north of Newcastle, lies the small village of Powburn on the A697, portrayed in the 1950’s as a ’lively little main road village’. The name is thought to mean 'slow-moving stream' although another translation suggests that the settlement that grew there was situated near to a pool in the burn. Powburn today is situated near to the Breamish river. The Roman road known as Devil's Causeway, extending from north of Corbridge to Berwick-upon-Tweed, crosses the Breamish at Powburn on its way north. On the top of one of the hills above the village are traces of a fort that once stood to guard the passage along the causeway. Glanton Pyke, standing at 695 feet, rises above Powburn and separates the Breamish and Aln valleys A small, rural community, Powburn is nestled near the foothills of the Cheviot Hills and hosts the Powburn Show, an annual event including sheepdog trials held each summer. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and allows easy access to the Cheviot Hills as well as Bamburgh and Holy Island on the coast. Its location makes it popular amongst walkers as a base for exploring the natural beauty of the surrounding area
