Newton Tors, College Valley, Northumberland
The Newton Tors form the eastern ridge of the College Valley.
The northern edge accommodates the St Cuthberts Walk. But you can walk from Easter Tor, Wester Tor and Harelaw
all the way down to Southernknowe. This is where the feral goats are most often
found along with the black grouse.

the end of College Valley estate land.
