Plessey Woods is a country park situated on the north bank of the River Blyth, in Northumberland. The park is accessed from the A192 in the village of Hartford Bridge, north of Cramlington and south west of Bedlington.

In 2016 Leading Link opened a youth-run Art Trail around Plessey Woods.

Around the trail there are wooden owls and painted snakes, including hobbit doors in the trees near the river bank.

The park extends over 100 acres (0.40 km2) of woodland, meadows and riverside, with a 1½ mile route circumnavigating these habitats and many smaller routes from this loop.

Free parking is available on site, as is a visitor centre with toilets and shop.

  • A great play area next to the visitor centre/cafe and lots of fun walks (and muddy puddles!) through the woods. I took my 6 year old and 3 year old and we all had a great time. There is a large car park with reasonable parking charges (1hr free then £1.60 for an additional hour).
