Walk Details
This walk enables you to see more of what is regarded as either a small town or a large village. Whichever it may be, Rothbury with its many fine properties, numerous small shops, cafes, hotels, and historic bulidings.

It is well-known as a popular centre for walkers as well as for its proximity to the former home of the inventor, industrialist and benefactor Lord Armstrong at Cragside (now a National Trust property).
