A Headquarters for Northumberland was at Keepers Cottage near Shielow Castle north of Belford. The Intelligence Officer using it was Captain Anthony Quayle.
Newcastle Evening Chronicle - 24th April 1968
His headquarters were in a gamekeepers cottage, where an adjacent building was ideal for storage of explosives. He could not recall its exact location but inquiries have proved that it was a cottage which still stands near Shielow Castle.
"I know it was just perfect, it was off the main road in the middle of a thick forest" Quayle recalled.
