Northumberland Coast Path (National Trail Guides)
Northumberland Coast Path (National Trail Guides)

The Northumberland coastline stretches from the outskirts of Newcastle up to the Scottish border at Berwick-upon-Tweed - a popular holiday destination for its wild and sweeping landscape of endless beaches of pale sand, succession of spectacular castles like Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh, congenial resorts like Alnmouth, and unique offshore attractions like Holy Island and the Farne Islands. Now, Roland Tarr's new Trail Guide maps out the walker's route along the entire coast, starting from the centre of Newcastle and including an extension beyond Berwick to the seabird crags of St Abb's Head.

Along the way the guide covers the remarkable industrial heritage of this coastline - the coalmining town of Ashington that gave birth to both the Ashington Group of Pitmen Painters and the Charlton brothers - and its fabulous wildlife, with seals and puffins off the shore. From a handsome Tyneside city to a distinguished border town straddling the Tweed, this is a superbly bracing walking country for the ever-increasing number of tourists who discover Northumberland every year.

The Border Country: A Walker's Guide (Cicerone British Walking)

Covering the border hills, northern Northumberland and the Southern Uplands, this third edition of the guide offers a broad selection of around 50 routes, as well as outlines of a number of long-distance trails which cross the region. The Border country that lies between England and Scotland is a countryside surrounded by ridge after high ridge rythmically fading into gently folding valleys, through which the Tweed and Teviot rivers flow. The area has been the scene of thousands of years of sometimes turbulent history, from the early iron Age, through the Roman occupation, with influences down the years of both Celtic and Christian beliefs. The guide offers the hillwalker routes which will open up this broad and expansive landscape, giving a real taste of solitude and affinity with this unique area.

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.
