Walking in Northumberland

36 walks throughout the national park - coast, Cheviots, Hadrian's Wall and Pennines

By Vivienne Crow

Guidebook to walking in Northumberland. 36 graded walks of 4 to 14 miles, from the beautiful coast with its immense, empty beaches and dramatic, crag-top castles to the remote hills of the Cheviots and Pennines. Includes Hadrian's Wall, Lindisfarne Priory, Kielder, Berwick, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh Castles and more.

Seasons

It's always a great time to walk in Northumberland - each season holds its delights - but walkers need to be prepared for snow in the Cheviots and on the Pennines in winter.

Centres

Lindisfarne, Craster, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Seahouses, Wooler, Rothbury, Allendale, Haltwhistle, Alwinton, Ingram, Kielder and many other villages.

Difficulty

A wide selection of walks including full days on the hills and coast and shorter walks at lower levels. Terrain includes moorland, farmland, forest tracks, coastal paths and woodland trails. Routes range from 6 to 22km. No technical difficulties.

Must See

The remote Cheviot Hills and impressive Iron Age forts; historic coastal routes, including the lesser-known side of Lindisfarne; Hadrian's Wall; the moors and valleys of the Pennines; Kielder Water and through its sprawling forests.
