Pennine Way

Mile 180

Alston

Alston, at the confluence of the South Tyne with the River Nent in the North Pennines, is the highest market town in England. At the beginning of the 20th century it was still at the heart of the lead-mining industry, and some of the atmosphere of bygone years is retained in the steep cobbled streets, the market cross and the old-fashioned fronts of some of the shops.
