Many thanks to Haughton Castle Holiday CottagesHaughton Castle Fishings for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The North Tyne rises on the Scottish border, north of Kielder Water. It flows through Kielder Forest, and passes through the village of Bellingham before reaching Hexham. Haughton Castle is a very attractive beat opposite Chipchase, Barrasford and Chollerton. The fishing is influenced by Kielder releases and has the Riverhill level gauge on the famous Long Rack Pool. A considerable number of sea trout are caught around late June and through July. Haughton Castle fishes well in July and August when there is water and has a fine run of Autumn fish. Haughton Castle sits on the banks of the North Tyne and is a popular film set location. The castle bears over Barrasford and is an impressive building that is still occupied. Parts of the castle have been modernised. The castle is not open to the public.
