Reiver's Way

242 km / 150 miles

A meandering route recently updated by Paddy Dillon, across Northumberland in the footsteps of the notorious border reivers, starting in the Tyne Valley passing the finest remains of Hadrian's Wall, and then heading northwest to Rothbury, over the Cheviots to Wooler, and finishing with the coast path from Budle Bay to Alnmouth. Reivers were raiders along the Anglo-Scottish Border country between the 13th and 16th centuries, with their heyday in the last hundred years during the Tudor dynasty in England.
