This is the third volume of Discover Northumberland and contains another 30 circular walks covering the whole of Northumberland from north to south and east to west.
Discover Northumberland Volume 3
It is aimed at people of all walking abilities and preferences with length ranging from 2.1 km (1.3 miles) to 21.3 km (13.2 miles) and difficulty ranging from easy to strenuous. Some of the walks are in a figure of eight, so each loop can be dine separately or together. Many of the longer walks have shorter versions and altogether the different variations and combinations make 50 routes. The walks range from the far north of the county on the Scottish border to the southern border with County Durham visiting the fabulous Northumberland coastline and the wonderful countryside inland along the way. Some of the walks are Northumberland classics but many are new, being specially created by the author after a lot of research and exploration. All the walks have detailed directions and a map and have been personally tracked by the author. They are supplemented with interesting commentaries about the places visited along the way.
About the Author
Mark Lejk has lived in Whitley Bay since 1982 and regards the North East as his spiritual home. He took up walking as an escape from the sometimes pressured world of computing in which he worked as a university lecturer. He soon became enchanted by the beauty and history of the area, and Northumberland in particular. He walks regularly either on his own or as part of a walking group which he helped to found.
