Tops of the North
Volume 2 - Carlisle and the Cheviot to the Cat & Fiddle
This is the second and final leg of Graham Wilson’s 1,000-km high level walk linking County Tops (old and new) of northern England.
From Carlisle to The Cheviot and the Northumberland coast, from the Durham moors to the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District, his entertainingly roundabout route finally returns to the moorland near Buxton where it began. The diverse tour takes in Hadrian’s Wall and Northumbrian castles, saintly Ways and long distance footpaths. In passing, Wilson discusses knitting miners and the Geordie language, Ted Hughes and the Venerable Bede, bogs, plagues and George I – and much more.
