The woodland area around the pond has been planted with over seven thousand trees. Stone footpaths and bridleways have been constructed linking Pegswood to both Phase one and two country parks. In the future a footpath link will also be created through Howburn Wood joining the existing footpath network to Morpeth.
Phase two of the country park
Over the last few years, we have explored a number of options for resolving the issue with the lake at the Pegswood Howburn Community Park, so that this second phase of the park will live up to the high standards we set ourselves for our landscape and restoration work.
We presented two restoration options to Pegswood Parish Council, as we were keen to ensure that the way forward that is chosen reflects the views and priorities of those that live in the immediate area. We are now implementing what Pegswood Parish Council has chosen as its favoured solution.
