Wooler

[Wooler]

Grazing the northeastern edge of Northumberland National Park is the attractive town of Wooler, England, for centuries a key hub serving the rural areas around the foot of the Cheviot Hills. There's not much to do here beyond exploring the High Street's independent shops and cafes, but plenty of other attractions and walks are within about 20 minutes' drive. The town's name probably derives not from the sale of sheep at the local cattle market, but instead from the Old English wella, or spring. Past Anglo-Scottish feuds has ended with the current border about 10 miles distant, but local place names are a confused mix of Scottish and English. None more so than the valley that Wooler occupies the flood plain of: Glendale.
