Northumberland National Park is the northernmost national park in England and it covers an area of more than 400 sq miles (1,030 sq kms) between the Scottish border in the north to just south of Hadrian's Wall. The least populated National Park in the UK, it is popular with walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders. It is also famed for having the darkest skies in the country, i.e. free from light pollution, and therefore a great place to go star gazing. Sycamore Gap shown in the picture above is probably the most photographed spot in the whole of Northumberland National Park as it appeared in the film 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves', starring Kevin Costner.
