Important notice fro Harwood Forest closures and diversions
The Forestry Commission have announced:
1. On 31 May there will be a car rally using Harwood Forest from 0700 – 1700hrs. The event enters from Simonside Car Park, then works its way down through the wood to the village. The best alternative is via Elsdon to join up with the route again. The diversion also passes the route that would enter via Hepple Whitefield on the bridleway.
2. On 5 July there is a motorcycle event in the majority of the main block of Harwood from 0800 – 1700hrs.
Try to plan your route south of Rothbury to avoid forest closure dates due to motorised events. Please DO NOT enter Harwood Forest on these dates.
