The Country Park is a large woodland and grassland park areas covering 57 hectares, and is is made up of a number if different areas, there are leisurely paths through beautiful woodland which follows the river Blythe. The large grass area beside Bedlington bridge is known as Attlee Park and further upstream is Humford Mill, where you can cross the river by stepping stones when the water level is low and you will find a play area. There are walkways, nature trails and horse trails. 

The Humford Mill area has a small children’s play area and picnic benches. There are a couple of options for parking depending on where you want to be (but if you are fancying a leisurely half an hour stroll then you might not mind where you park, as the carparks are not miles and miles from one another). If you fancy the play area and the stepping stones, use NE22 5RT. If you fancy the woodland walk use NE22 5RX.

North of the river Blythe you will find Free Wood, and on the south side of the river Ha’penny Wood.

The Bedlington Country Park was created to protect the unique nature of the area and later became a recognised local nature reserve. Keep your eye out for the protected red squirrels! 

Q Where will following the directions take me?

Using the guidance here you will be directed to a car park at Humford Mill or Attlee car park.

Q Is additional parking available?

Yes, at Furnace Bridge, and at the bottom of Bedlington Bank.

Q are the paths pushchair friendly?

It is depending on the kind of pushchair you use, it you have an all terrain pushchair you might be fine, however probably don't attempt it if you have a standard pushchair with small wheels.

Q Is it wheelchair friendly?

From what we have seen and read, we would say not. If you have an all terrain wheelchair, then you could give it a whirl, the terrain isnt flat and the paths are not surfaces. We don't think there are any accessible toilets.
