A linear walk from Langleeford exploring the Harthope Burn valley. Lying on the south flank of the Cheviot, the highest summit in the Northumberland National Park, the valley is wild with sheep the only inhabitants. Quiet and remote, the valley offers a peaceful walk in glorious surroundings. The route follows the Harthope Burn upstream to reach the waterfall of Harthope Linn. After rain you can expect an impressive sight. This walk can easily be combined with Walk 2153 - Housey Crags.

The walk starts from a roadside parking are on the south side of the road into the valley from Wooler (grid ref. NT953225). about 600 metres before reaching Langleeford. After parking, head west up the road past to Langleeford Farm and take the track through a gate. The clear track up the valley passes farm buildings at Langleeford Hope (grid ref. NT933208). Shortly after the track ends and the route continues on the north side of Harthope Burn soon passing sheep pens before reaching Harthope Linn (grid ref. NT928203).
