Starting in the market town of Allendale, we head out into lovely countryside where views open out over the East Allen valley and beyond. At the village of Catton we will visit a lovely arboretum in a fabulous location where the owner will tell us about the trees and his stone circle. From Catton we walk above the valley before descending down into the East Allen Valley. Finally, we meander along the valley beside the river in the footsteps of Isaac Holden, a famous local tea trader and philanthropist.
