Walk Information

The Ravenber Way is a 210½ (336.8 km) long-distance coast-to-coast walk across northern England from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland.

Alfred Wainwright's approved route 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.
