The Cheviot, at 815 m (2,674 ft) high, is located in the north of England, close to the Scottish border. It is the highest point in Northumberland and the Cheviot Hills. It is also the last of the major peaks on the 286-mile Pennine Way.
The summit is mainly flat and is covered by a surrounding, far-reaching, peat bog that is up to 2 m deep in places. Stone slabs provide a safe route to reach the summit. Further to the north of the summit, the wreckage of a B-17 bomber can be found as it crashed there during World War Two.
