Haltwhistle Walking Festival


It’s hard to believe that another walking festival has come and gone. None of us can remember better weather, with lots of sun, clear views, (even on Cross Fell), and only an occasional shower.

The committee wants to thank everyone who came along and supported us.  We hope to see you all in the Spring 2017 Festival.

This year we were nominated for a North East Tourism Award.

At the award ceremony on July 7th, we were one of 3 finalists in our category. We were runners up to the winner, Bamburgh Castle.

Thanks to everyone who provided comments that were used in the application. It is amazing that we were in the final, because we cannot possibly hope to compete regarding numbers with the big businesses in the county.

John Johnson, Tony and Marie Miller were at Linden Hall to represent us on the night.
