Around Kielder Water

Falstone hides beshadowed
Beneath the massive dam
Hinting North Tyne Valley
Before the work began

Tower Knowe is powerful
Calm, serene yet wild
Cycle, walk or sail there
Or picnic with your child

Lieplish laps in lightly
With restaurant’s scenic dream
Watch balmy boats and skiers
Or swim and eat ice cream

Onward to the Castle
Whose gifts and arts cascade
With crafts, events and playground
For youthful escapade

Buzzing on the water front
Are birds and boats and skis
With guided hikes, mountain bikes
And sports activities

Dive into the forest
An undulating net
Of peaceful, calm serenity
In Pines so deeply set
