Ravenber Way

Cumbria, Northumberland

338 km / 210 miles
The Ravenber is a challenging coast-to-coast walk from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed, England`s northernmost town. Following existing rights of way, the route leads the walker through terrain of dramatic contrasts. It passes first through the mountain heart of Lakeland, and traces the Roman road over the High Street Range; it crosses the pastoral Eden Valley, climbs the high Pennine, and heads towards the remote fell country of Northumberland. The vast northern forests and rounded heights of the Cheviot Hills give way to the leafy valley of the River Till, and finally the traveller follows the banks of the mighty River Tweed to reach the North Sea at Berwick.

The walk, whose title, the Ravenber, is derived from the words Ravenglass and Berwick, is a journey which passes through two National Parks and other areas of outstanding natural beauty. It has the merit of sustaining the walker`s interest with a splendid diversity of attractive scenery mountains, high hills, rolling moorland, expansive forests and lush river valleys. There are also charming villages and towns and a wealth of fascinating history on the ground.

The publication divides the 210 miles of the route into fourteen sections, with sketch maps to indicate the main route as well as a number of alternatives.
