Entrance to Kirkharle, Northumberland, England

This evening, I am posting information on a rural hamlet in Northumberland known as Kirkharle.

The name may mean ‘woodland clearing of a man named Herela’ which was recorded as far back as the 12th century.

Kirkharle has a visitor centre known as Kirkharle Court Craft Centre and is popular with visitors.

Kirkharle is best known as the birthplace of famous 18th century landscape gardener, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown (1716-1783) who has left an indelible mark on the English landscape
