St. Oswald’s Way Coastal Short Walks BAMBURGH & BURTON
Bamburgh with its magnificent castle, is one of the highlights of Northumberland. Steeped in history going back thousands of years it was once the seat of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria when Oswald was King!
This walk will also take you inland a little around beautiful farmland at Burton – rest assured though you will still see the majestic castle all the way, from angles not normally viewed too.
Distance: 7 miles (11 km)
This walk is available in its own folded leaflet in a set of eight which are waterproof and rip-proof, including maps, route instructions and information about the places and features found on the walks.
