A lovely walk from Hexham to Corbridge with some nice woodland trails and a riverside section in Corbridge. The walk also visits the interesting CoriaRoman site in Corbridge at the end of the route.
Starting in the Hexham town centre the walk heads south east into Dukeshouse Wood. Follow the woodland trails east past Duke's House towards Dilston where you will pass Dilston Castle, a ruined 15th-century tower house.
At Dilston you pick up a trail along Devil's Water where there are a series of waterfalls. You follow the river north to the point where it meets the River Tyne and then turn east to Corbridge Bridge. The 17th-century stone bridge will take you across the river into Corbridge. Turn left and you can follow another riverside path to the Corbridge Roman Site. It's a fascinating site with information boards detailing the Roman occupation which ran until the 5th century. You can also discover Roman armour and trinkets uncovered with theCorbridge Hoardat the museum.The Hoard wasone of the most significant finds in Roman history, providing a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier on the Hadrian's Wall.

Just to the north of Corbridge you can visit Aydon Castle where you'll find a 13th century manor house and walks along the Cor Burn and the walled orchard.
