Ashington is situated within the Woodhorn and Coast area in Northumberland. Shifting
from what was once a local farming community to one that revolved around the opening of a
colliery, Ashington developed into a well known coal mining village. This village grew to such an extent that the mining area was at one stage known as the the largest in the world.

However, today the area is better known for its local museum and range of peaceful and
well maintained local parks.

At the Woodhorn Museum,the stories of those that worked in the mines are brought to life with interactive displays housed within a building that was inspired by the machines that the
miners used.

The Woodhorn Museum also houses The Ashington Group Collection. This important
collection includes paintings by the Pitmen Painters whose work contributes unique
perspectives of the local area at a time when life was often hard and troubled.

Those looking around the museum can enjoy a trip on the Woodhorn Railway Society's
Gauge Train, which provides a locomotive adventure for all the family!

For further family fun, visitors can take a walk in the local parks, which include both
Wansbeck Riverside Country Park and the Queen Elizabeth II Country Park.

Wansbeck Riverside Park gained Local Nature Reserve status in 2007 and covers a grand
112 hectares. A walk in this park will take you to a picturesque river often used for rowing, as well as woodland and grassland just perfect for a picnic or some bird watching.
