Description

Walk to Wellbeing in Northumberland National Park - Haltwhistle Burn

Get out and get healthy in Northumberland National Park with our Walk to Wellbeing Programme.

Northumberland National Park and Active Northumberland are working with Healthy Walks leaders to design walks suitable for people wanting an easy introduction to the inspirational landscapes of Northumberland National Park.

All walks are led by West Tynedale Health Walk trained volunteers.

On this walk we follow the beautiful Haltwhistle Burn seeing evidence of Haltwhistle’s industrial past. We climb out of the Burn for views towards the Wall, walk past Roman remains before climbing further over moorland to fine views of the Tyne valley. We descend to the Burn once more and back to Haltwhistle Market Place.

Please note that the end time is approximate only, as the walk rate will be that of the slowest walker.

We can quite often end the walk with a visit to a local cafe or pub (the costs here are your own!)

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.

Distance: 4.25 miles

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks/packed lunch (there will be a picnic stop for lunch). Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk. If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival.

Terrain: Good footpaths, moderate ascents and descents, some over rough moorland with a few stiles. There is a short section of walking along the Military Road.

Meeting place: Haltwhistle Market Place (park at either Sainsbury's car park - NE49 9DZ, or Willia Road car park).

For those wishing to use GPS/Sat-Nav to find walk start points please note that, particularly in open country, postcodes cover a large area, so, whilst the postcode will get you to the right general area, you will still need to follow the detailed directions to locate the actual Walk Start Point.
