'The Ravenber is a challenging coast-to-coast walk from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed, England's northernmost town. Following existing rights of way, the route leads the walker through terrain of dramatic contrasts. It passes first through the mountain heart of Lakeland, and traces the Roman road over the High Street Range; it crosses the pastoral Eden Valley, climbs the high Pennine, and heads towards the remote fell country of Northumberland. The vast northern forests and rounded heights of the Cheviot Hills give way to the leafy valley of the River Till, and finally the traveller follows the banks of the mighty River Tweed to reach the North Sea at Berwick.'

'The route I suggest is not "The Round Dorset Walk"; it is "A Round Dorset Walk". Whilst staying within the county boundary at all times, the route uses the boundary only as a reference and does not follow it slavishly, as that would mean missing out on some wonderful walking. Nor does it delve into the heartland to explore all that Dorset has to offer, for to do that would turn this walk into one of epic proportions.' ALERT Ths Website originally cited here seems no longer, so I have referenced a historical page on the LDWA Website as an alternative.

The loop paths are designed for beginner to intermediate walkers and range from urban roads to the country tracks of the Pennine Bridleway and Mary Towneley Loop.
