Alston and Allendale Walking Country

Alston and Allendale Walking Country

by: Paul Hannon
Set in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the walks in this guide cover the South Tyne, West Allen and East Allen valleys. The parallel valleys of South Tynedale and Allendale are very similar in character and form a logical group for the purposes of this book. Both run from south to north, until the South Tyne turns abruptly eastward, to be joined by the Allen at Bardon Mill.

Within this book's area the deep valleys run between high and lonely moorlands, frequented only by occasional walkers and grouse shooting parties. The small, market town of Alston sits at the heart of south Tynedale and makes the perfect focal point for this collection of walks.
The guide includes 22 routes, which are mainly between 5 and 7 miles in length. Each is concisely described and supported with background and practical information including distance, start point grid references and OS map details.
