The image top is of Greenhead centre with the Greenhead Hotel being the most prominent building in the Village.

The Greenhead Bunkhouse is also in the Village centre, popular with Walkers on the 84 mile Hadrian's Wall Path.

The Old Forge Tea Rooms is across the road from the Hotel.

The junction up by the Hotel leads 200 yards to the left onto the A69 Carlisle to Newcastle road.

Turn right at that junction and it is about half a mile to Thirwall Castle, half of a mile to Haltwhistle Golf Club, and about 2 miles to the small Village of Gilsland for a good 1 mile section of Hadrian's Wall between Gilsland and Birdoswald Roman Fort.

The road running down past the Hotel is the B6318, that leads to the Roman Army Museum about 1 mile, Walltown Quarry and Hadrian's Wall 1 mile, and a number of the top Forts and sections of the wall for 16 miles alongside the B6318.

The cross shaped Memorial by the Hotel is for locals who died during the Two World Wars.

The smaller fountain by the memorial was erected in 1865 by the Widow and family of John Blenkinsopp Coulson of Blenkinsopp Estate. The Estate is situated next to Greenhead with a partially ruined Castle from the 1300s, and an 1800s Mansion.
