Alston Moor Parish Council

Welcome to Alston Moor

Welcome to Alston Moor, home to a vibrant, self-sufficient community in the high North Pennines, part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

 If you cannot find the information you require, please email the clerk. (Details also available below or on the contact page).

Alston is an historic small town in the North Pennines with a steep main street lined with stone buildings, many recently restored. The villages of Garrigill and Nenthead, and a number of hamlets and isolated dwellings, are all part of Alston Moor. The parish extends across high moorland beyond the source of the South Tyne, towards Cross Fell, and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and UNESCO Global Geopark.
