Ford, River Coquet, Harbottle

  • Description

    "This ford lies on an unclassified road that comes from the village of Harbottle about 250m away on the other bank and then goes towards Biddlestone. It is unlikely that ordinary vehicles use this ford; it is not signposted, it is rough and deep, and visitors to the farms further along this road have to go via Sharperton 3km to the east. However recent tracks in the silt either side of the ford suggest that it is no barrier to tractors. The placename Harbottle means the 'dwelling of the hirelings'." Photo by Andy Gryce, 2007.
