Walking in Northumberland - Cicerone

This guidebook to walking in Northumberland includes 36 graded walks

between 4 and 14 miles. The routes offer something for everyone, ranging

from easy ambles on the coast and gentle woodland trails to long days out

on the hills, and can be undertaken in all weather. Most of the routes are

circular, but there are a few linear walks that make use of local bus services.

Taking in the beautiful coast with its immense, empty beaches and dramatic

crag-top castles to the remote hills of the Cheviots and Pennines, this book

covers the whole county. And the big skies, largely free of pollution and manmade

constructions, open up views that stretch on for miles. The landscapes

are rich in history, featuring Hadrian's Wall, Lindisfarne Priory, Bamburgh and

Dunstanburgh castles, and much more. This is England's most sparsely

populated county, and roughly 25 per cent of it is protected within the

boundaries of the Northumberland National Park.

The walks are divided into five geographical areas: north-east

Northumberland, National Park (north), Kielder, Tyne Valley and National

Park (south) and the North Pennines. Each walk description contains

information on start/finish points, distance covered, total ascent, terrain,

approximate walking time, grade, maps required, transport options, public

toilets and refreshments, and is accompanied by 1:50k OS mapping. The

book also includes a handy route summary table.
