The starting point of this walk is the delightful village of Bardon Mill with its excellent pub, shop and famous pottery. The village takes its name from the water mill that was driven by the adjacent Chainley Burn. Leaving the village we join the Chainley Burn and follow it north, past the disused colliery sites of an industrial past. We head towards Vindolanda Roman Fort. Swinging west we walk towards Cranberry Brow with impressive views north towards Hadrian’s Wall and the historic border territory. We continue across lovely open country with spectacular views south over the beautiful Tyne Valley and towards the distant hills of Geltsdale and the North Pennines. We pass Hollin Crags before descending towards Haltwhistle.
This walk is suitable for anyone staying in Haltwhistle without a car; a coach leaves Haltwhistle Market Place and the walk ends there.
