A Boot up The Northumberland National Park

A Boot up The Northumberland National Park

Rocks are carved with secret graffiti of the Stone Age, the Bronze and Iron Ages left burial mounds and hill forts, Roman roads and forts extend far to the north of Hadrianís Wall and castles recall five centuries of border conflict that followed the Norman Conquest.

Yet the legacy of this remarkable history is one of the most stunningly beautiful regions of Britain. Most of the walks, of between 2 and 8Ĺ miles, are suitable for families and groups of friends, and follow public rights-of-way, across high, wild and lonely moorland, where the sky is wide and the loudest sounds are the hiss of wind, the babble of water and the distant calls of skylark, lapwing and curlew.

The ten walks are:

Great Hetha; The Cheviot; Dunmoor Hill and Linhope Spout; Chew Green and Brownhart Law; Copper Snout and Usway Burn; Harbottle and the Drakestone; Darden Lough; Troughend Common; Bellcrag Flow; Broomlee Lough and the Hidden Loughs.

Halsgroveís small-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the area.
