Short Walks in Northumbria Guidebook

Short Walks in Northumbria Guidebook

by: Richard Hallewell
This full colour guidebook contains 20 easy walks of 5 miles or less within the Northumberland National Park and also along the Northumberland coast, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Northumbria offers diverse landscapes: the scenic North Sea coastline, the moorland landscape of the Cheviot Hills and the historical interest of Hadrian's Wall.

The guide is one of a series produced in cooperation with the Ramblers and features full colour OS Explorer mapping, making route finding straightforward. The book begins with a useful introductory chapter describing the region including its geology and wildlife and outlining the walking highlights and practicalities.

Each walk chapter gives a short descriptive overview followed by detailed route finding instructions. A side panel provides practical information including distance, time, terrain, and starting grid reference. Additional numbered text boxes cross referenced to the OS map describe features of interest along the way. There are also lots of colour photographs illustrating the walks.
