About the walk

Starting from Kirknewton, our route joins St Cuthbert’s Way which it follows, climbing the edge of the Cheviot Hills past Tom Tallon’s crag, before turning north to White Law, a rarely visited summit.

Turning west, we then ascend Yeavering Bell, the largest and most impressive Hillfort in Northumberland where we will have the opportunity to explore some of the many remaining ancient hut circles before rejoining St Cuthbert’s Way and returning to Kirknewton.
