Tour NorthumberlandNorthumberland (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) The county's remarkable and richly varied military architecutre, from Hadrian's Wall to Warkworth, contrasts with monastic ruins buried deep in the valleys of the Coquet and the Aln or standing proudly by the sea at Holy Island and Tynemouth. Newcastle upon Tyne has the most elegant nineteenth-century city centre in England. Elsewhere the distinctive smaller towns include Alnwick, dominated by its castle, Hexham with its priory, brick-built Morpeth, and Berwick-upon-Tweed, ringed with exceptional sixteenth-century fortifications. Great country houses range from Vanbrugh's theatrical Seaton Delaval to Sir Charles Monck's austere Belsay and Norman Shaw's romantic Cragside. Monuments of a great industrial past, as well as a wealth of smaller buildings, such as bastle houses (peelhouses or stronghouses unique to the Border country), are all vividly described in this revised guide to Northumberland's architectural pleasures.

The Hidden Places of NorthumberlandThe Hidden Places of Northumberland & Durham (Hidden Places Travel Guides) Northumberland has much to offer the visitor with the Cheviot Hills, the Kielder Forest Park, Hadrian's Wall and the North Northumberland Heritage Coast which, of course includes Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island and the Farne Islands. County Durham has a rich industrial heritage particularly in mining, steel and shipbuilding some of which is now in the relatively new county of Tyne & Wear, but it also possesses the historical city of Durham with its magnificent cathedral and castle and, to the north, the beautiful scenery of Weardale, Teesdale and the northern Pennines. Tour Northumberland.

Northumberlandl National Park GuideNorthumberland (Official National Park Guide) In the wilds of the Border country. Hadrian's Wall runs along the crest of the Whin Sill while drifts of prairie and forest lead to the North Tyne valley and Redesdale. Today's military training area at Otterburn reminds us that the Romans were not the first, nor the last, soldiers to find themselves stationed in this wilderness. The heather-covered Simonside Hills are home to emperor moths, grouse and curlews. The Cheviot Hills are a rolling massif of 'white land', a long-extinct volcano with a granite heart, covered by a tracery of prehistoric settlements and field systems. Exploring the sweeping hills of the Northumberland National Park, where the far horizons melt into scudding cloud and sunshine, can be an intense and surprising experience.

Walking in NorthumberlandWalking in Northumberland: 36 Day Walks (Cicerone British Walking S.) Walking in Northumberland provides the reader with 35 walks ranging from wild walking and craggy ascents to forest treks and gentle riverside strolls. Endless empty miles of sandy bays, rippling dunes and rocky points are accompanied by the tides of history, as the walks lead you through the cradle of northern Christianity and past silhouetted coastal castles.

Kings in the NorthKings in the North In the Middle Ages, the earls of Northumberland were famed, or notorious, as the Kings in the North, a region they ran almost as an hereditary domain. Alexander Rose traces the history of this ancient and sometimes haughty dynasty, from the moment William de Percy stepped into England alongside William the Conqueror to the waning of the medieval era after the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.

NorthumberlandNorthumberland (Collins New Naturalist S.) A definitive natural history of Northumberland, from its ecological history, geology and climate to its naturalists and conservation issues.

There is something here for everyone, including children, and those who prefer a short stroll or a full length walk.

Northumbria KingdomNorthumbria, 500-1100: Creation and Destruction of a Kingdom This book deals with the rise and fall of the kingdom of Northumbria. It examines the mechanisms of ethnic, political, social and religious change which, beginning after the end of the Roman Empire, welded the large and disparate area between the Humber and the Firth of Forth into one of the most powerful kingdoms of early medieval England, and those which led to its disintegration and its replacement by political structures of northern England and southern Scotland.

Exploring Northumberland HistoryExploring Northumberland History Exploring Northumberland History was born out of a deep-seated love of the heritage, history and landscape of this very special county. Its marvellous geography, its unique political position, its special place in the history of the north and the character of its lively inhabitants have woven together to produce that unique Northumbrian charisma. Northumberland is a huge county and was frequently described in early documents as a wasteland, and indeed, it suffered greatly as a buffer state between the continually warring kingdoms of England and Scotland - sometimes taking sides but in reality owing allegiance to neither. Northumberland's colourful and sometimes bloody history has been dramatically acted out against the wonderful backdrop of the high, wild, Cheviot Hills; the rolling forests, moors and farmland; and the miles and miles of wonderfully unspoilt coastline that make up this much appreciated area. This new book is a clever blend of contemporary photographs and historical fact, coloured with old folk-stories and mystery to lead us on an exciting exploration through the history of England's most northerly county.
