Knowing that the Kielder Forest had so much to offer, and never having visited it before, I was dying to explore every little mile of this incredible place, taking it all in and spending a nice day in my element, surrounded by nature. Bruno joined me on this adventure, and even though the weather forecast wasn't brilliant, due to chance of rain, we decided to brave it out and not reschedule the trip once more. We were going, regardless of the weather.
We left the house at around 10am and drove about one hour from Newcastle all the way to Kielder. The last time we attempted the trip, we got lost and couldn't find our way around because we forgot the most important thing: a map! We were very keen to see the 'Forest Head' in particular, a big wooden head in the middle of the woods, where you can go inside and look out the windows, which are the eyes of the head. However, last time, we made the rookie mistake of relying on our phones for directions...but when you lose signal in the middle of the forest, there's not much more you can do if you're not prepared. This time, we had a map, and we were determined to find the 'Forest Head', also known as Silvas Capitalis.
