Backwards and Forwards Again

Embleton to Bamburgh - 25 September 2021 This was our first walk of 2020 and at that time we had been to Bamburgh six times over the years, the last time being in 2017.

We Are Back

Longhorsley to Rothbury - 11 September 2021 After 17 months and 38 missed walks, we are finally making a comeback.

This is Close to Home

Riding Mill to Ebchester - 1 February 2020 This one is close to home, after picking up at our last stop in Gosforth we are off on a short trip west of Newcastle and over the Scotswood Bridge to pick up the A695 road which we more or less follow all the way to the last drop off at Riding…
