'The Cheviot Hills wander along the extreme northern edge of England sweeping effortlessly down into Scotland like a tide of green, rolling waves. Covering an area of some 1035 square kilometres (400 square miles), they are not, in the great scheme of matters mountainous, particularly big. However, Northumberland`s premier hill, The Cheviot, rises to a height of 815 metres (2674 feet) and is a broad-backed brute of a hill. It stands like a colossus peering down into the Harthope, College and Lambden Valleys. Five other hills in the range, Windy Gyle, Comb Fell, Cushat Law, Hedgehope Hill and Bloodybush Edge, top the magical 610 metres (2000 feet) mark and, with endless views to distant horizons to delight the eye, you cannot help but feel that this is truly big country.

'Borrowdale is blessed with an amazing range of mountain scenery. From the lofty heights and lonely moorland of the Skiddaw massif, to the gentle woodland on the banks of Derwentwater, through the craggy enclosing ridges of High Spy and the secretive side valley of Watendlath. Any walk through Borrowdale is a delight, but to immerse yourself on a three day expedition is an unforgettable experience.'

'The 1932 Mass Trespass on Kinder Scout has been described as the most significant event in the century-old battle for the Right to Roam on Britain’s mountains and moorlands, now enshrined in law under the 2000 Countryside and Rights of Way Act ... Now you can follow in the footsteps of the trespassers by walking the Trespass Trail, a 14-mile walk starting and finishing at New Mills, where there are rail connections from Manchester and Sheffield.' ALERT Unfortunately, the Trespass Trail Website (and the Friends of Kinder Trespass?) seem no longer; so I have changed the Link to a description by LDWA.

'This is thought to be one of the most hard going paths up Snowdon, as it starts only a little above sea level. The path starts off wide and quite even, but becomes rocky towards the second half, and then crosses loose scree.'

'A "hop on, hop off" circular long distance hike ... For years I've wanted to plan a walk that links the official Yorkshire long distance trails into a circular route, linking the Ways with high peaks in some of the wildest parts of Yorkshire. The Wild Yorkshire Way is the result ... Very few people will attempt the entire route in one go, but you can enjoy sections of the route, or even single day walks, and slowly complete the walk by filling in the missing sections. The route prefers high and wild terrain wherever possible, although the wildest and hardest sections usually have easier alternatives. You will notice that several day walks start and end at pubs, which is of course entirely intentional ...'

'The "Yorkshire Dales Celebration Way" is my own creation. This unique Long Distance Footpath is my tribute to this fantastic National Park. At approximately 130 miles long (depending on the various alternatives provided) it is designed to be walked in eight days. It conveniently fits it into a "one week holiday window" especially suitable to starting and finishing on a Saturday or Sunday.'
