Hexham & Newcastle: The Holystone Way (GPX only)
A Pilgrim Way from the Cathedral of St Mary's in central Newcastle to the Diocesan Shrines at Jesmond and Holystone.
After a short walk beside the Ouse Burn the Shrine of St Mary's, Jesmond is reached. The Way crosses northern Newcastle passing the Church of St Charles Borromeo in Gosforth. After more suburban walking countryside is reached and the Way heads north west to reach the Church of St Matthew, Ponteland. More walking across farmland follows to meet the St Osvald's Way at Kirkwelpington. This travels north and crosses Harwood Forest to Rothbury where the Pilgrim Way leaves the St Oswald's Way. The Way turns west passing the Church of St Agnes in Rothbury and then the Church of All Saints in Thropton. Finally the path follows the River Coquet to reach the Holy Well at Holystone near Sharperton.
