Brampton & Haltwhistle Tour

Brampton & Haltwhistle Tour

This route climbs out of Alston and heads down to Nenthead before exploring the fascinating upper reaches of the West Allen Valley. It provides a solid days riding, with a mix of valley lanes and some sizeable climbs onto fell roads. On a misty or windy day the high points of Black Hill and Willyshaw Rigg will prove challenging to say the least, but given a blue sky and a fair breeze there can be few better spots to be on two wheels. As well as the stunning North Penine landscape along the way there is plenty to see particularly if you are interested in industrial heritage.
