St Oswald led an army to do battle in Heaven’s Field. If they felt anything like me they would not have been up to doing much fighting. I dropped out two thirds through the fifth day with a thigh strain (It still hurts!).
The walk led us through some spectacular scenery, up on to moorland, along rivers, past castles, old churches, hills, towns, beautiful bays, cliffs, and past all manner of wild-life. Northumberland is a gem of a county and largely deserted. Huge sweeping sandy beaches with just a lonely couple for company. The castles on the shore, the old towns of hewn rock, and the green landscape.
Not only that but the locals were friendly and the ale tasty. What more could you want?
