Walk Information

A route through the remote and less-visited countryside of East Cumbria and the former North Pennines, along the South Tyne from its source south of Garrigill, through Alston and on to Haltwhistle near Hadrian's Wall. Much of the route uses well-surfaced paths along the route of the South Tynedale Railway. This is a multi-user route using paths, bridleways or parallel quiet roads.

We have started the walk at Dufton, which isn’t officially on the route, but the nearest village with accommodation, for the night before you start your walk. Follow the Pennine Way for the first part of the route.
