Wark is a peaceful village lying between the North Tyne River and the vast forests of the Northumbria National Park to the west.

Wark Chipchase Castle which sits on the opposite side of the river was once vital to the control of the area in its lawless and turbulent distant past. As a result of past conflicts, all that remains of the castle is its motte (the mound on which it was built).
