Walks from Kirknewton

Walks from Kirknewton

by: Peter McEwen
The community of Kirknewton lies on the north eastern edge of the Cheviot Hills. Now a tranquil oasis, this area has a long and varied history, much of it steeped in bloodshed that runs from the ancient Celts to the Border Reiver. In a series of eight walks the author explores both the history and the nature of this edge of the wildest range of hills in England. Here the walker is in the minority, outnumbered by the wild goats, roe deer and mad march hares. Starting from Kirknewton, this collection of walks includes gentle strolls along the valley bottom as well as more strenuous expeditions onto the higher tops surrounding the village.
Each walk chapter begins with a short description of the route plus practical data including distance, ascent, terrain, time and grid references. The route descriptions are clear and comprehensive and an outline sketch map is included. However, we would recommend taking the relevant OS Explorer map along with you on these walks. Sheet OL16 covers all but one of the walks in this book. Each walk has also been assigned a Ferguson Grading System rating and the book gives details of this system and how to interpret the grades. Black and white and colour photographs are included.
The walk titles are: River Walk; Kings and Kilts; Yeavering Bell; The Tors; Hethpool Linn; Cheviot Hills Heritage Walk; Mid Hill; Coldsmouth Hill.
