Warkworth to Rothbury
(18 miles / 29 km)
Warkworth is a beautiful village set in a meander of the River Coquet beneath the imposing castle. From here, St. Oswald’s Way wanders up the scenic Coquet valley on one of the longest sections of the route.
It passes through the village of Felton then through woodland and along riverside paths to Weldon Bridge.
The route then stays on the southern side of the Coquet, glimpsing the historic Brinkburn Priory on the other side of the river, through attractive rolling farmland to reach Rothbury, “the Capital of Coquetdale”, set in superb Northumberland scenery.
