You will also follow the historical St Cuthbert’s Way for part of today. We highly recommend taking the short side trip to see the fascinating St Cuthbert’s Cave, where the body of St Cuthbert was reputedly taken when the monks had to flee to safety from Lindisfarne when the Vikings raided.

Fenwick is a fairly small town with limited facilities but your B&B will run you to the pub for dinner.

Equipment

Such is the way of British hiking, that you need to be prepared for all seasons and weathers; sturdy hiking boots, warm clothes and a waterproof/wind-break layer are all required, as is plenty of sun-cream and a healthy respect for the sun.

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike, it might be beneficial to bring a power bank.
