About the Walk

Our circular walk follows St Cuthbert’s Way going westwards over Gains Law and Black Law before descending by the Gleadsclough track.

We then join the bridleway which takes us below Harehope Hill and Humbleton Hill before returning via the Humbleton track to Wooler Common.

This walk is steeped in history and provides exceptional views.
