Walking the Northumberland Dales Guidebook

Walking the Northumberland Dales Guidebook

by: Jennifer Norderhaug and Barbara Thompson
Northumberland - the last county in England where it is possible to walk all day and have for company only the sigh of the wind, the call of the curlew and the ever changing stunning vistas. This unique guidebook explores the lesser-known landscapes of North and South Tynedale, Allendale, Hexhamshire, Blanchland and Hadrian's Wall. These are in the historic countryside of Northumberland, with forays into Cumbria and County Durham and all within easy access of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Durham and other popular locations.

The 28 walks, ranging from 3.5 to 7 miles, are packed with interest on the history, industrial archaeology and the traditions and culture of the area. Detailed maps and descriptions of the ascent and terrain encountered ensure that you select the most appropriate walks; and you can see which ones are suitable for dog walkers.
The walk locations are: West Allendale; Mohope (Ninebanks); Allendale Chimneys; Langley; Old Man's Bottom (Sinderhope); Ashgill Force; Lambley Viaduct; Willimoteswick; Old Haydon; Grindon Green; Barcombe Fell; Portgate; Corbridge; Hexham; Warden Hill Fort; Haughton Castle; Simonburn; Goodwife Hot (Wark); Thockrington; Dukesfield; Shildon; Wagtail and Nookton; Carriers' Way; Hallywell; Slaley.
