A Facebook campaign has been launched to support an independent anti-Brexit candidate to stand in a pro-Leave constituency in Northumberland.

Steven Ford took out a full page advert in local paper, the Hexham Courant , last week, saying he would stand as an independent candidate if he can get 10,000 expressions of support on the Facebook page by 9 May.

It said the “Tories plan to deliver a Hard Brexit at any cost to the UK", the Lib Dems "prefer a Soft Brexit”, while neither Labour nor the Greens are willing to challenge the referendum result.

Atop panel of judges will this week begin their search to find the best businesses in Cumbria.

Allendale , often marked on maps as Allendale Town , is a village and civil parish in south west Northumberland , England. At the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 2,120, [1] decreasing to 2,021 at the 2011 Census. [2] Allendale is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty [3] (AONB) – the second largest of the 40 AONBs in England and Wales. The local economy is predominantly based on agriculture (notably sheep farming) and tourism, although of late it has become a popular commuter town for Newcastle upon Tyne.

Allendale refers to the "dale" or valley of the River Allen. Evidence of prehistoric settlement has been found on the surrounding moorland. In the 16th century this area, close to the Scottish border, was a lawless and troubled place. Fortified farmhouses known as ' bastles ' were constructed to protect residents and livestock against reiver raids. Allendale has one of the greatest concentrations of bastles in the country and around 40 can still be seen, many as scenic ruins.

Local mining for lead has occurred since Roman times, with the first smelting mill being constructed in the 1600s. The significant growth of Allendale Town and the surrounding villages was fuelled by that of the local lead-mining and smelting industries in the nineteenth century. The remains of two flues from the former smelting mill (between Allendale and Catton) run to chimneys up on the fells high above the village. The smelting mill is now home to the Allendale Brewery [4] and the Allenmills Regeneration Project. [5]
