Walking in Northumberland
Northumberland, England's border country stretching down from the wild Cheviot Hills with their turbulent history of border warfare and family feuds to the edges of the North Pennines and their industrial past.
To the east there is the long, sandy coast with it's fishing villages, old castles and the heritage of being the cradle of Christianity in England. Every footstep in this country touches a long and fascinating history. This is a walker's country where the horizon seems to go on forever. A country where every walker deserves to place their boots. The Northumberland Walker series of guides explores the magical countryside of Northumberland from the volcanic hills of the Cheviots, the edges of the North Pennines, the green forests of Kielder to the long, sandy beaches of the coast.
