Here’s a New Place

New Moor Crossroads to Felton - 12 October 2019 Here's a new place to finish the walks and while we have been through it on a number of occasions we have never completed our routes in Felton. This small village is just off the A1 road going north from Morpeth and south of Alnwick, however, until 1981 when the A1…

A Trip to the Seaside

Lealholm to Staithes - 28 September 2019 We have two more trips to the North York Moors left on our programme for this year and both of them involve a trip to the seaside.

A Walk to Wark

Fourstones to Wark - 14 September 2019 We are off to that oddly named and pronounced place on Saturday.

Is it Chop Gate or Chap Yat, You Decide

Swainby to Chop Gate - 17 August 2019 We are planning to finish in Chop Gate this time around. There has always been some discussion on how the place should be pronounced, with many people going for the pronunciation Chop Yat.

The Only One

Langholm Circulars - 3 August 2019 It's the only one this year, a trip to the Scottish Borders and on this occasion a visit to Langholm. We do not get into Scotland very often, there was only one visit last year and the last time we were in Langholm was in 2008. Not quite sure why this is because walking…
