About Walking in Northumberland

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.

The varied routes devised by our writers can be purchased in book format or alternatively as an individual walk downloaded from within each of the relevant books below.

June sees the release of our latest new publication on Northumberland. The book, titled Walking in the Simonside Hills, covers the sandstone hills running between Coquetdale and Redesdale. This area is popular with walkers along the iconic Simonside Ridge and yet surprisingly, little visited in the main bulk of the hills and somewhere that deserves to be visited more by the enthusiastic walker.
