Northumberland

One or the Other

Ingoe Moor to Meldonpark Corner - 24 November 2018 The pub where we are finishing is called the Dyke Neuk and on old Ordnance Survey maps it was also a place name but some time ago the place became Meldonpark Corner so as it's one or the other or maybe both that's where we are ending up this time around.

On the Edge

Sweethope Loughs  to Bellingham- 10 November 2018 Take a look at a map of Northumberland and Bellingham is not quite on the western edge of the county but there is only Kielder Forest separating the village from the Scottish border which is not much more than 15 miles away.

Far West of the Lakes

Braithwaite to Cockermouth - 15 September 2018 September 11, 2010, was the last time we were in Cockermouth and between that date and May 2003 we visited a total of four times. So quite a gap between our last visit and the one coming up. However, because the main route comes in from the direction of Keswick on the A66 road there are…
