Ravenber Way: Walk Information

The Ravenber Way is a 210 mile (336.8 km) long distance coast to coast walk across northern England from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland. It’s name is cleverly derived from the first letters of the start and end points of the walk.

The Ravenber Way is a route approved by Alfred Wainwright’s, and passes some of the Lake District’s finest mountains, passing Wasdale Head, and traces the way used by Roman soldiers over the High Street Range, crosses the Eden Valley, climbs over the high Pennines, traverses the northern moors and heads on into  Northumbria. Beyond the Roman Wall lies the fell country, the Simonside Hills and the beautiful slopes and ridges of the Cheviots. Finally, the walk follows the leafy valley of the River Till and along the banks of River Tweed to reach the North Sea.

Wainwright always maintained that people should be encouraged to plan out new routes, to experience the joy of participation, and to be thrilled with the challenge of a long-distance walk. The route passes through two National Parks and other areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The walk is typically divided into 14 sections.
