This lovely walk explores some of the varied scenery around Wallington Estate and the picturesque village of Cambo.

The walk starts by passing through some of the estate farms, now owned by the National Trust. The wonderful large tree belts around the fields give it a true estate feel which has been kept in the traditional way by the National Trust.

On your return journey you pass a spot where John Wesley preached, just nine years before his death. He was the founder of the Wesley fellowship, which after his death grew into the great Methodist Church.

You then continue on back to the village of Cambo, with its striking church. The present church at Cambo is certainly worth a visit in its own right, with the current church being consecrated in 1842 and was built by Sir John Trevelyan of Wallington Hall.

The landscape covered by this walk is steeped in history and this is evident everywhere.

It is one of the best medium length walks we have in Northumberland.

shepherd's notes

A great short walk some lovely scenery.

K.P. wrote – My wife and I walked the Cambo walk today. A lovely walk, ideal for the winter conditions and just what we both needed.

P.M. wrote – Super little walk. Cambo is a real hidden gem on the Wallington Estate. It is somewhere we have driven past on many occasions without realising what a beautiful village it is. But best of all what a fantastic end to the walk as you approach the village with the church standing tall.
