Gate onto Emblehope Moor
Gate onto Emblehope Moor
The Emblehope estate is an extremely remote and inaccessible area in northern Northumberland, an enclave of some 3,000 hectares comprising just two houses and an extensive area of very rough wet moorland supporting some 1500 ewes, almost totally surrounded by Kielder Forest.

A small area towards the northern edge of the estate has been leased to the MOD as a military training area NY7397 : Military Training Area on Emblehope Moor. This area, measuring about 200 by 50 metres and enclosed by a track is shown on the map as a "danger area" but it is hard to see why it has been so designated. The only warning sign and flagpole are located at the gate onto the Moor about one kilometre distant.
