St Oswald's Way and St Cuthbert's Way PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

St Oswald's Way and St Cuthbert's Way free pdf In easy stages, this guide describes two long-distance trails through the unspoilt scenery of Northumberland and the Borders. St Oswald's Way begins at Heavenfield and its 97 miles take in rolling farmland before reaching the coast's vast sandy beaches. The 62-mile St Cuthbert's Way, beginning at Melrose, crosses the rugged crags and heather moorland of the Cheviot Hills. Both trails pass through Northumberland National Park to converge on the atmospheric Holy Island - a crucible of Christianity in Britain, and a site of pilgrimage even today. Each can be walked within a week. The guidebook also offers information about the rolling dunes and tidal flats that make up the Northumberland Coast Path. From Cresswell to Berwick (64 miles), this trail covers the entire length of the Northumberland Coast AONB. The variety of scenery, a rich history including Iron Age forts, medieval abbeys and impressive castles, as well as plentiful local wildlife, make Northumberland and the Borders one of Britain's most beautiful corners to explore on foot.
