Walking in the Haltwhistle Area
Northumberland is a land of contrast shaped not only by nature, but by its history. Its past has included times of lawlessness and violence but also periods of refinement and religion. This region ranges from picturesque river valleys to wild, windswept moors; from woodland to open pasture. Haltwhistle is considered to be the gateway to Northumberland National Park (Northumberland National Park) and Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site (National Trust) (English Heritage) . The Haltwhistle Rings (Haltwhistle Rings) were originally written so that others could experience the pleasure of walking in this unique area. We want you to fully enjoy your walks so here are a few tips to help you on your way.
