You don't always need a telescope to get up close and personal with the planets: a pair of 10 x 50 binoculars will show you the moons of Jupiter and the Andromeda Galaxy. Simple star charts can be downloaed at www.darkskydiscovery.org.uk
When you are looking for space & time to "get away from it all" & recharge your batteries, then Northumberland - officiallly designated as England's most tranquil county - is the place to be. And for real peace and solitude, come and explore north Northumberland. You'll enjoy mile after mile of white sandy beaches, with ancient castles or villages as their backdrop. This whole stretch of coastline is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Or wander among the quietest of hills & valleys, each with their own stories of battles and community. This is an ancient land, the "cradle of Christianity", a borderland forged & formed from its tempestuous history. The most beautiful landscapes bring you the very warmest of welcomes, the best local food & produce and memories to last a lifetime.
Come, refill your soul and you will find the journey to north Northumberland is well worth it!!
Lowick means "settlement on the river Low".
A Roman Road called the "Devil's Causeway" passes through Lowick on it's journey from Corbridge in the south to Berwick upon Tweed in the North of the county.
An ancient road used by the Monks of Lindisfarne to go to Durham crosses this Roman Road, east to west, and it is on this crossroads that the village of Lowick began to develop.
Monks of Lindisfarne built the Norman Chapel in Lowick when the ancient parish was sub divided. The present Anglican Church of St. John the Baptist dates from 1794, with the addition of the chancel and vestry in 1887.
