The book comprises 36 short walking routes generally between 4 and 26 miles, passing through, finishing in, or contained within Northumberland. Northumberland is an extensive county with wide horizons, where space and solitude are in abundance and time is measured by the seasonal cycle. Choose from wild walking, craggy ascents, forest treks and gentle riverside strolls through hills and braes that have few equals. And if that is not enough, there are endless empty miles of sandy bays, rippling dunes and rocky points each bearing pages of Northumberland history. Mountains, moorland and sandy coast provide some of the finest walking in England, and without doubt the most secluded.
Each book in this series features 100 circular walks ranging from 2-12 miles. The walks have a map, points of interest, and places to eat and drink en route, plus suggestions for easy car parking. Places covered in this volume include Morpeth, Rothbury Forest, Alnwick, and Berwick.
