Haltwhistle Rings Relaunch
Between 2019 and 2020, the 22 original Haltwhistle Rings Walks have all been rewalked, checked, rerouted where necessary and repairs requested from the Council as required. A fantastic editorial job has been done and all the updated walks are just waiting for you here.
Some of these walks use open access land. You can find more information on the ‘right to roam’, including any local closures, here. (Link to external site)

The History of the Rings
The Haltwhistle Rings are a collection of 22 circular walks of between 4 and 9 miles, all centred on Haltwhistle and its neighbouring parishes. They were devised, tested, mapped and described by keen local walker John Dixon (now deceased) and Mike Swan.
