LOCATION Gilsland is a small village that straddles the border between Cumbria and Northumberland, with most of its houses in Northumberland. It is situated on Hadrian's Wall, and is ideal for exploring the North Pennines, Eden Valley and the Scottish Borders. Apart from the Roman forts of Birdoswald and Housesteads, there are numerous other castles in the area, some occupied - Naworth and Featherstone, but most in ruins including Blenkinsopp, Thirlwall, Bellister and Bewcastle. Just north of the village is Gilsland Spa Hotel, much frequented in the summer, on account of its beautiful scenery, and the chalybeate and sulphur springs that issue from the rocks. The village has two pubs, a post office and primary school.
