Ranger's favourite walk - Harthope Valley
Sun 11 June 2017, 10:30 – 13:30 BST
Join one of our National Park Rangers on one of their favourite walks in Northumberland National Park.
This Ranger's Favourite Walk in the Harthope Valley has a short steep climb which is well worth the effort with spectacular views up the valley and over to the coast. The walk will include a stop at Old Middleton, the inspiration behind one of Simon Armitage's Poems in the Air.
This is an easy walk suitable for most walkers - whilst there are some steep ascents and descents, there will be enough stops to take in the views and allow you to catch your breath.
To avoid disappointment we recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks/lunch (there will be a picnic stop at lunchtime). Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk. If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival.
Duration: 3 hours
Distance: 4.5 miles
Directions: From Newcastle take the A697 to Wooler. At Wooler take Cheviot Street, the first on the left for 'Harthope Valley' via Earle and Middleton Hall for approx 2 miles. Park approximately 100m before bridge on the right hand side.
