St. Oswald’s Way Countryside Short Walks GREAT WHITTINGTON
Great Whittington is an extremely pleasant stone-built small village with a small village green. It is close to the Tyne Valley but is separated from it by the often-visited Roman frontier of Hadrian’s Wall.
The village still retains a great sense of calm though and is surrounded by the attractive, rolling countryside that is typical of this beautiful part of Northumberland.
Distance: 5 miles (8 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.
