A walk in the rolling countryside in the area between Hexam and Slaley Forest in the southernmost part of Northumberland. This interesting walk comprises lanes, fields and the delightful wooded valley that carries the unjustly named river called Devil’s Water, a tributary of the Tyne.

Starting from Slaley village the walk heads west initially along lanes and through fields before a long lane walk passes through a series of farmsteads collectively called the Dukefields. Further lane walking follows before a little field walking and then woods takes you to the southern most point of the walk where the route changes direction and descends steeply down into the wooded valley through which runs the Devil's Water. The route then traverses the picturesque wooded valley at times alongside the river and at other times up through the trees crossing and re-crossing the river. A little walking on surfaced roads then follows before the route once again changes direction and heads south through woods, lanes and fields to return to Slaley.
