Recreation/Picnic Areas for Children and Families

Shaftoe Doorstep Green

In 2004-5 the Parish Council acted as an umbrella organisation for a group of local parents who wanted to create a safe place to play for their children. The site lies on land above the Shaftoe First School, with outstanding views North over the village.

With funding from the Countryside Agency and Tynedale Council the Shaftoe Doorstep Green came into being.

With a separate toddlers play area, something more challenging for older children, and seats and picnic tables for parents to relax at, there is something for everyone.

A car park located behind the First School provides access for all.
