Enjoy a walk to Humbleton Hill from Wooler and enjoy great views over the Cheviot Hills.
The walk starts in the popular walking town of Wooler. Begin by following country lanes west out of the town to Wooler Common where you can pick up a trail along the Humbleton Burn. After about a mile you turn north, following a section of the St Cuthbert's Way past Brown's Law. You then branch to the right to pick up the trails that will take you up to the Humbleton Hill summit. Here you will find the remains of an Iron Age hillfort and splendid views towards Yeavering Bell, the Northumberland coast and the Scottish Hills.
The hill is also of historical significan being the site of the Battle of Homildon Hill fought between the English and Scottish armies in 1402.
This walk skirts the edge of Wooler Common. The common is a great place to extend your walk with woodland trails, two ponds and an easy access trail to try.
You could also continue west along the St Cuthbert's Way and visit Yeavering Bell with its a late-prehistoric Hill fort.
