A comprehensive guide to walking The Reivers Way, a long-distance path through Northumberland at the northern edge of England, from Corbridge to Alnmouth. Follow in the footsteps of the notorious border 'reivers' and discover how they survived centuries of strife and warfare. The Reivers Way wanders for 150 miles (240 kilometres) through the wildest and most scenic parts of Northumberland, taking in the North Pennines, Hadrian's Wall, Tynedale, Redesdale, the Simonside Hills, Coquetdale and the Cheviot Hills. This wild and sparsely populated landscape includes a national park, areas of outstanding natural beauty and a fine heritage coast. This guidebook includes nine days with variants and alternative routes, clearly illustrated on OS map extracts; details of all the services and facilities along the way; background information on local history and heritage; and information about an optional excursion to the bird reserves of the Farne Islands.
