Northumberland - 40 Coast and Country Walks

Northumberland - 40 Coast and Country Walks

by: Jon Tait
History has left its mark on England's rugged northern frontier and the prehistoric hillforts, ancient castles, fortified bastle houses, ruined abbeys and, of course, Emperor Hadrian's great wall, all testify to a turbulent past. The forty short walks in this book visit many of Northumberland's famed historical attractions including Holy Island, Bamburg and Dunstanburgh, as well as many less well known ones, on a tour which also takes in rolling moorland, craggy hillsides, verdant gorges, beautiful farmland and a coastline packed with pretty harbours, hidden coves, vast sandy beaches and windswept dunes.

Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, parking and public transport access where available. Clear route finding instructions are provided together with simple overview sketch maps, but OS Explorer map sheet numbers are also provided. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way and plenty of colour photographs on almost every page.
