Sycamore Gap - Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland
This iconic tree was used as a location in the film Robin Hood Prince of thieves, and is a notable point in the midst of Hadrians Wall. There are a couple of car-parks close by, but both will require a walk with some upward climbs. Can be incredibly busy, and best to avoid summer when the location really attracts picnic munchers. We had to wait a good hour or so for some to move so we could shoot it, so earlier or later in the day or during less appealing weather conditions to avoid the non photographic people.
Crag lough, a rocky outcrop next to a lake is also worth a shot or two. There are various hill forts and Roman ruins and things of notable interest in this area too worth a visit and photograph.
