About Carrshield Camping Barn

Carrshield Camping Barn
Carrshield Camping Barn is located within the former Barney Craig Mine Shop. This used to be the largest mine shop in south Northumberland. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and was at risk of collapsing beyond repair. With funding from Historic England and the Heritage Lottery Fund the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership renovated the building using traditional methods and existing materials, converting the upper floors into a basic Camping Barn. It is now owned and managed by Allen Valleys Enterprise Limited, for the benefit of the local community. ​
