Border Moors and Forests, Upland and Upland Fringe
Author(s): Jeremy Lake
This extensive upland plateau, dominated by coniferous woodland, is located in the English-Scottish border country and is centred on Kielder Water. To the south-west it drops down to the Solway Basin and to the south it is defined by the Whin Sill scarps, running along the Tyne Gap. To the east are the sandstone hills of Northumberland. There is no urban area, but an unusually high woodland cover of 43%. Of this area, 39% (the eastern part) lies in the Northumberland National Park.
