The Reivers Way runs 150 miles through some of the finest landscapes in Northumberland. It starts at Corbridge station, on the main Newcastle to Carlisle railway line, and finishes at Alnmouth station, on the Edinburgh to London main line. It can be walked in nine day-stages, staying in bed and breakfasts, or camping if you prefer. There are also a number of pubs and hotels to stay in en route. It takes in some of the most delightful small towns and villages in the county - Corbridge, Alnwick, Rothbury, Wooler, Holystone, Craster and many more. It finishes by walking the finest stretch of "Northumbria's lordly strand", from Budle Bay to the mouth of the Aln. The terrain walked includes high moorland of the Cheviots and the Allendale Moors as well as some fine wooded denes around the tributaries of the upper Tyne and the best stretch of Hadrian's Wall from Housesteads to Sewingshields. It passes, or rather pauses, in a number of delightful pubs along the way. This guide directs the walker along the way and explains much of the historical background to the region.
