This second edition of the popular Walking in Northumberland provides the reader with 35 walks ranging from wild walking and craggy ascents to forest treks and gentle riverside strolls. Endless empty miles of sandy bays, rippling dunes and rocky points are accompanied by the tides of history, as the walks lead you through the cradle of northern Christianity and past silhouetted coastal castles.
Alan Hall, a Scottish 'squatter' for 44 years, has written and photographically illustrated 10 outdoor and walking guides covering the Scottish Borders, the Lammermuirs, Kielder Forest, Northumberland, the North Pennines, North York Moors, Fife and Perthshire, and Lochaber - Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. Plus, at the time of writing, Kissamos and Selinos in western Crete. An inquisitive pedestrian, full-time writer and photographer, Alan has walked in, in addition to Britain, Catalyuna and the French Pyrenees, Italy and Sri Lanka, plus some 20 Greek islands and small areas on the Greek mainland. None more extensively, however, than his favourite, the addictive island of Crete.
