From Elsdon we follow a quiet track, then make a steady climb up through pastureland to Landshot Hill for some super views over towards Otterburn and the England / Scotland Border.

Descending past the edge of Harwood Forest, we follow a quiet track through woodland, crossing the 'prettiest burn in Northumberland' which is managed as a nature reserve by the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, to reach East and West Todholes. We then drop down into the historic village with some lovely views before us.

The Church is linked with the border reivers who supposedly sharpened their swords on the church pillars. Elsdon Village has a rare combination of historic and architectural features, plus many small Georgian buildings.

The village green still has a pinfold for stock and tethering-bars for the horses. The seats under the trees make an ideal resting stop with the village pub just across the way.
