Northumberland Summary


Northumberland: including Newcastle, Hadrian's Wall and the Coast Local, characterful guides to Britain's Special Places by Gemma Hall

This is the most comprehensive guide to the far north of England in print. It encourages visitors to slow down and explore the green lanes, footpaths, rivers and cycle trails that link Northumberland's 'Castle Coast' with the heather-topped hills, Roman fortresses and villages of the interior. A guide to Newcastle is found in the chapter on Tyne & Wear. Local knowledge of historic towns, heritage sites, wildlife-watching spots and countryside walks, and words and tips from local heritage experts make this an authoritative guide - and as much an entertaining armchair read as a practical guide.
