Overview

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.

Meet the Author

Alan Hall is an experienced walker and the author of several Cicerone guides, including The Border Country - A Walker's Guide and Walks in the Lammermuirs.
A Scottish 'squatter' for 45 years, I have written and photographically illustrated 11 outdoor books and walking guides covering the Scottish Borders, the Lammermuirs, Kielder Forest, Northumberland, the north Pennines, North York Moors, Lochaber- Ben Nevis and Glen Coe, Fife and Perthshire and Kissamos and Selinas in Western Crete. An inquisitive pedestrian, full time writer and photographer, I have walked (in addition to Britain) Catalonia, the GR10 and HRP in the French Pyrenees, Italy and Sri Lanka, plus some 20 Greek islands and small areas on the Greek mainland. Five words 'Let's Go For a Walk' started it all. Now I am never more content or challenged than with my walking boots on, a camera in my hand, a sack on my back and a great walk successfully completed to enthuse the reader. Five words also personify what I look for to make a good walk great 'challenge, scenery, variation, history' and 'wildlife', qualities that are frequently met in all the walks. To share them with the reader there are photographs relating to the route enabling the walker to identify their location/position with the accompanying route description, maps and items of interest. I believe one good photograph is worth a hundred words.
