The Northumberland region

The nearby town of Allendale is famous for a New Year celebration where lighted tar barrels are carried on the heads of revellers called guisers. This tradition dates back to 1858. It appears to have originated from the lighting of a silver band that were carolling at New Year. They were unable to use candles to light their music due to the strong winds, so someone suggested a tar barrel be used. Having to move from place to place, it would have been easiest to carry the barrels upon the guisers heads, rather than rolling them. There have been claims that it is a pagan festival, however, these claims are unfounded.

Hexham

Carrshield is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated in the Pennines approximately between Penrith and Hexham. It is a small village with an old school building situated in the centre of the village. The school was built in 1851 but is no longer a working school and is now three houses.

Carrshield is surrounded by beautiful fell ground and is littered with old disused mines. Remnants of the old stone works where the lead was mined are still able to be seen next to the river. There are no shops in Carrshield.
