I began walking in North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders in 2000. This gave me an insight into the farming economy and the importance of respecting the countryside. These early walks led to my joining a walking group on the border to explore the Cheviot Hills and the borders further.

My first Northumberland distance walk was Hadrian’s wall followed by the St Cuthbert’s Way which crosses into Northumberland near Kirk Yetholm, the Pennine Way which passes through Northumberland, the Berwickshire Coastal Path which starts at Berwick upon Tweed, and the first part of the Northumberland Coast Path.


I started recording my walks on video in 2012 to share with others. Below is a link to my Northumberland playlist. I have included a few walks which cross over onto both sides of the border which I have put into both Scottish and Northumberland playlists.
