Large area of common land where the Freemen of the city are allowed to graze their cows. Very popular with runners & every June it is the site of Europe’s largest travelling funfair ‘The Hoppings’.
The valley between the hills gets very muddy, if you're walking the dog then have a hosepipe ready!
Be careful, those hills are bigger than they look!
THE HOPPINGS held here every June since 1882 the largest travelling funfair in Europe meets on the town moor at Newcastle, loads of fun no matter how old you are!!!
The Hoppings, a large funfair, is here in the middle of June every year.
