Ellen Bowness has a proven record for creating guide books to specific areas in the UK - everywhere from the Lake District, to the Yorkshire Dales and even London.
The latest installment looks at Northumberland - an area of outstanding beauty that stretches from Newcastle up to Berwick-Upon-Tweed. The book looks at both coastal areas and those inland - anyone visiting Northumberland should stop by Hadrian's wall at some point.
There are 3 chapters covering the coastal areas, and then one on castles and the surrounding countryside before moving on to a chapter dedicated to Hadrian's Wall.
The book is well laid out and each chapter includes an introduction to the area, printed maps to help you find your way around and arrows to the key points in each area.
Each photography worthy site has an example image, and information about how to get there including grid references.
The images that Ellen has captured to illustrate the book are stunning. If you're planning a break to Northumberland, even if the trip isn't strictly for photography, it's well worth investing in this book.
At the back you'll find the usual useful practical information about sunset and sunrise times, the time of year to visit and a location summary table including the difficulty of the walks for each location.
It's not quite small enough to fit in a pocket, but as long as you're travelling with a bag you should be able to fit the book in with no issues.
