Follow in the footsteps of seventh century
pilgrims on this interesting walk or cycle through Tyne and Wear. The trail links the twin Anglo-Saxon monastery of St Peter’s in
Wearmouth and St Paul’s in Jarrow. The route passes through the beautiful landscape of the Great North Forest which includes twelve miles of rolling hills and meandering streams. Trail highlights includes a waterside stretch along the River Don and the final coastal stretch along Whitburn Sands and through to the finish point near Sunderland Harbour.
There is also the Bede's Cycleway which follows a very similar route to the walk - please click here for more information.
