Hillforts of the Breamish Valley Guided Walk

Event date:
5th December 2021
Ingram Bridge National Park Car Park

Update: 3rd December 2021 - Following Storm Arwen, some of the rights of way within the National Park may have sections which are temporarily closed or unsafe for visitors at this time. To ensure the safety of participants we have chosen to cancel this guided walk. Ticket holders will be contacted directly. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Book your place on our guided walk for an invigorating 3 hour circular walk with stunning views visiting several hillforts.

Our walk begins in the village of Ingram before a long steady climb takes us south up Wether Hill.We continue to the top of Cochrane Pike where we can enjoy the views to the north which include an Iron Age Hillfort as well as a number of other settlements.

Our path allows us a closer look at these remains before we reach Brough Law."Law" is old English for a flat topped hill, typical of the Cheviots. We end our walk with a gentle stroll back to Ingram. Please note that some of the walking is strenuous and the hilltops are exposed in poor weather.

Booking essential.
