Yeavering Bell is a very historical place. It is also odd, in that it has two summits. It also has the largest hill fort in the region, which encircles both summits of the hill. Within it there are remains of over one hundred timber round houses. The fort itself is suspected to be iron age and has been there for around 2500 years.
The Walk – Yeavering Bell
We will begin our walk at Wooler Common car park. From here we will head out along St Cuthbert’s Way. However, we will take the same route as the Humbleton Hill walk, before turning off to contour around Harehope Hill. This route takes us to Gleads Clough, crossing the Akeld Burn and then further up on the moor. The last leg is round White Law and on to our destination, where we will have lunch.
The route back
The route back is across Wooler Common, on St Cuthbert’s Way. This area is spectacular when the heather is out, as it is carpeted in purple.
We will probably visit The Terrace Cafe in Wooler after the walk.
Hope to see you there.
