Lady's Well at Holystone Wood

This is a short route which leads you to the National Trust landmark where St Paulinus supposedly baptised 3000 Northumbrians during Easter week, AD 627.

None of the longer paths and trails within the wood are waymarked, and it is recommended that you take an OS Landranger or Explorer map with you to aid navigation.
