Overview

'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.'
