We are looking forward to providing yet another excellent selection of varied routes for you.

Every day there is a longer and a shorter walk. On four days there will also be a Special Interest walk. Walks for Spring 2017 include:

Longer walks:

Kielder to Bellingham - a 15 mile walk from Kielder Dam to Bellingham across some rough terrain in the far north of our territory

The Roman Round - a 4 day walk from Haltwhistle, 53 miles in total. Do you have the stamina to come with us on this one?

Shorter walks:

Catton Circular with tea afterwards in the village hall

Special Interest walks:

Singing Walk in Hexham with songs in the Abbey itself led by Kat Davidson, well-known Northumberland folk singer
