The Cheviots, Northumberland
A circular walk starting at Wooler common taking you around Humbleton Hill and across to Yeavering Bell.
Yeavering Bell lies on the very northern edge of the Northumberland National Park in The Cheviots and atop it sits the largest Iron Age hillfort in the region.
Parking for the walk is best at Wooler Common and then you are straight onto the hills from here.
The track continues west and heads past Tom Tallon's Crag with beautiful views over the green rolling hills. Then it's up onto Yeavering Bell and the hillfort is a little difficult to see from ground level, but check out the aerial video below.
Then it's back down the hill aheading east partly walking along the road. In a nearby field is the Bendor Stone (Battle Stone), which marks the spot of the Battle of Homildon Hill in Red Riggs field, so called because of the amount of blood that was spilled. Lots of human (and horse) bones have been ploughed up here over the years.
Then we just head back towards the finish and we have no completed a mega 16km walk. Have a butchers of an aerial video of the walk to get the full experience.
Thanks to Phil Hawyes for the photos and information.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Walks from Simon
