walk notes

After meeting at Alston there will be a short transfer to Nenthead (included in the price).

From Nenthead you will be guided along the river before picking up the Pennine way to Kirkhaugh Station before crossing the South Tyne and following it to Alston.

A great section of Isaacs Tea Trail.

The heritage of the North Pennines is well represented on Isaac's Tea Trail with examples from over 2000 years of history with the magnificent Roman Fort of Whitley Castle, the defensive bastle house of Rowantree Stob, and extensive evidence of industrial archaeology and the mining and smelting of lead and silver.  A world apart from what has now become one of the most tranquil and unspoilt parts in England.
