  • Description

    "At the southern edge of the town of Wooler, Common Road (to the right of picture) leads to tracks and paths over Wooler Common. To the left, the same road goes downhill to join Market Place and is known as Ramsey's Lane - the sign must be of some age, as it is grammatically correct: it is a good many years since address-systems introduced the regrettable practice of a blanket removal of punctuation from street- and house-names (on current street-maps this road is shown without apostrophe, viz "Ramseys Lane"). The bridleway seen heading off into the background left of picture affords wonderful views over surrounding countryside, and joins Cheviot Street just south of Wooler Youth Hostel."
