About the Fenton Centre
The Fenton Centre is a unique visitor experience located in the heart of the north Northumberland countryside.
Opened in 2005, the centre provides an educational and recreational resource to allow exploration of the cultural heritage and natural diversity of life in the countryside - from times past, present and the implications for the future.
We believe that a foundation of appreciation and understanding of the vital role the countryside and rural economies play in society today - wherever we may live, is the only way to foster the atmosphere of long term co-operation necessary to safeguard the environment for future generations.
But the Fenton Centre is much more than an academic resource - It is situated on a real-life working farm with a dynamic environmental diversification policy. From commercial crops in the fields, to wildlife ponds and river banks, the Fenton Centre allows you and all the family to get your wellies muddy, have fun and learn at the same time.
Consistent with the centre's, "Think Globally - Act Locally" philosophy is the intention to allow local artists and crafts-people to use the centre to showcase their works to a wider commercial audience - and to sell direct using this website as an online shop window. Take a look around the gallery today to view the current works.
