Wildlife Areas
Powburn is a small village on the A697 in Northumberland, England about 8mi south of Wooler and 10mi northwest of Alnwick.LandmarksThe Devil's Causeway passes through the village and continues north under the A697 road crossing the River Till. The causeway is a Roman road which starts at Port Gate on Hadrian's Wall, north of Corbridge, and extends 55mi northwards across Northumberland to the mouth of the River Tweed at Berwick-upon-Tweed.There was a wonderful pub called The Plough in Powburn which served fabulous meals and had a great atmosphere, although now the owners have moved to a smaller pub in Alnwick called the Blue Bell Inn.By the roadside a stiff half-mile eastwards from Powburn is Crawley Tower, a fine Border pele constructed largely of material from the Roman camp one corner of which it occupies. The station has been a strong one (its defensive ditch is still imposing) and probably guarded the crossing, near Hedgeley Railway Station, of the Breamish by the Devil's Causeway.
