Sections of St Oswald’s Way, particularly Harwood forest, are currently unavailable due to storm damage. It could be some time for the route to be fully open again. If you wish to report any fallen trees and damage to the trail, please do so by clicking here.
St. Oswald’s Way was originally devised by Embleton Church Council and then implemented by a partnership of public sector organisations led by Alnwick District Council. It is now managed by a small, voluntary non-profit team, the St Oswald’s Way Management Group, assisted by bodies including Northumberland County Council and by over thirty volunteer rangers, who help to look after the route.
The group is funded by sales of our official St Oswald’s Way products, and profits are put back into the management and improvement of the route. If you would like to contact us, please do so by using the form below:
