  • The walk starts beside the Harthope Burn (Ref. NT 954 225)
  • Take the road from Wooler signed Harthope Valley.
  • Take first road on right after 1km. Continue to road junction at Middleton Hall.
  • Turn right up Harthope Valley (several steep hills to start with) to starting point (about 8km. from Wooler) and stop just before the bridge.
  • Plenty of parking at side of road on grass.

But they that wait upon the Lord,
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary;
and they shall walk and not faint.

(Isaiah 40 : 31)
