Route Outline

The Cheviot hills are amongst the wildest parts of England with only limited access by road to this part of the Northumberland National Park. This walk includes the Roman Camp at Chew Green and the Roman Signal Station a short distance to the north. The start is the small car park at Chew Green (grid ref. NT794085) at the head of Upper Coquetdale. The journey into the start provides a taste of the scenery to be enjoyed during the walk. From Rothbury take the B6341 through Thropton and after 2 miles take the minor road to Alwinton. From here follow the 'no through road' up Upper Coquetdale for just over 10 miles to Chew Green.
