The Last One, Again

Alnmouth to Dunstan - 22 December 2018 Is it the last one again? It's come around so quickly it's hard to believe we are coming up to our 25th walk of the year, our 5th walk was cancelled because of bad weather during the winter months.

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.

Bardon Mill to Allendale Town - 17 February 2018 It's four years since we last went this way to Allendale Town and it was just about the same time of year.
