  1. Hethpool House lies on the Ravenber Way. This is a coast to coast walk of 210 miles, from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland.

    • Hello Ron,
      Great to hear from you….I have a copy of your book on the Ravenber way – good travel writing in deed.
      Last year I did drop you an email but maybe it got caught in your spam filter?
      Anyway I will resend and thank you

      • Hello Gillian, Very many thanks for your reply and your kind comments.It is good to have feedback. I look forward to receiving more messages from Ravenber walkers. I shall soon be starting work on a long distance walk from Settle to Berwick-upon-Tweed. As they say – watch this space!

  2. I wish to have details of Coast to Coast on the Ravenber Way included on the Hethpool House News Letter and blog. I am working on a new book describing a long distance walk from Settle to Berwick-upon-Tweed. As a personal friend and associate of Alfred Wainwright, the book will contain route descriptions, as well as personal memories, tales and anecdotes.

    • Hi Ron,
      That would be a pleasure to do this. Please check your email for one from my Dad, Colin. He had tried to contact you last year but said that he suspected the email was probably trapped in your spam folder 🙂
