Item description for HIDDEN PLACES OF NORTHUMBERLAND AND DURHAM (The Hidden Places) by Peter Long...
This is the 6th edition of the very popular Hidden Places of Northumberland and Durham. The cover, page layouts and maps in this edition have been completely redesigned to produce a very attractive and easy-to-use travel guide covering, Northumberland, Durham and also Tyne and Wear (which until the 70's was a part of County Durham). The book is printed in full color and includes detailed directional maps and eye catching photographs. It is also packed with places of interest, places to stay and places to eat and drink full details of which are contained in a handy separate section. Northumberland has much to offer the visitor with the Cheviot Hills, the Kielder Forest Park, Hadrian's Wall and the North Northumberland Heritage Coast which, of course includes Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island and the Farne Islands. County Durham has a rich industrial heritage particularly in mining, steel and shipbuilding some of which is now in the relatively new county of Tyne and Wear but it also possesses the historical city of Durham with its magnificent cathedral and castle and, to the north , the beautiful scenery of Weardale, Teesdale and the northern Pennines. Northumberland and Durham are well worth a visit!
The cover of the new edition incorporates an eye-catching photograph of Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland.
