Hareshaw Linn, a Northumberland waterfall.
This is one of Northumberland’s most impressive waterfalls and it’s also one of its most accessible.
I’ve been many times before, but don’t always take a camera – landcape photography can be very anti-social sometimes – but as it was my birthday, I thought I’d treat myself.
conflation of Old English hlynn,
meaning ‘torrent’, and Scots Gaelic linne
cognate with Irish linn, Welsh: llyn
A linn is a waterfall.
Or it might be a raging torrent;
a deep pool at the foot of a waterfall or a steep ravine,
Hareshaw Linn has all of these things.
What it means is down to you.
