Bradley Farm Profile

East Bog Farm and Bradley Farm

Farm House

Situated in south west Northumberland in Hadrian's Wall Country, Bradley is a 200ha hill farm with sheep and suckler cow enterprises.

The Farm has recently joined with another neighbouring farm, East Bog Farm and the land size has subsequently grown from 200ha to 350ha.

The farm is owned by the National Trust and Julian and Lesley Acton have been tenants here since 1987. The farm is subject to many constraints both natural and man made. In common with other hill farms, its height (300m above sea level) and exposure to the wind leads to a long winter and relatively short growing season, while thin soils, rocky slopes and areas of waterlogging mean that most of the farm is only suitable to grass production and grassing animals. Lying within the Northumberland National Park, the land is in the Roman Wall Escarpments SSSI and Hadrian's Wall world heritage site.
