The Heritage Way is a route of about 80 miles which travels around the edges of the former Tyne & Wear Metropolitan District. The route takes in woodland, coastal and riverside scenery while visiting many places associated with our rich istorical past. It is divided into 9 sections, each averaging 9 miles in length. The Heritage Way has been restored and re-opened by members of Northumbria Ramblers.    

The route will be officially opened on Thursday May 31st at Causey Arch. During that week we will celebrate Ramblers  Walkabout Festival with sections of the Heritage Way being walked each day. Below is the link to the timetable :

Enjoy 3 free walks to be sure we are the group for you and then sign up to be a member of Ramblers Hexham Group and enjoy all the many benefits.

      We walk every Sunday, starting at 10.15 am, meeting at the start of the walk.

       Our walks are not just in and around the North and South Tyne and main Tyne Valleys, we also walk on the Northumberland coast, in the Cheviots, and in south Northumberland and north Durham.

        The walks range from 5  - 11 miles. The pace is not fast and there are always stops for drink and lunch breaks. Whenever one is nearby, we finish off the day with a tea shop visit.

         Please note that we only allow registered assistance dogs on walks. Also, young people under 18 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

         We also have a path maintenance group which meets monthly between April and October. We clear vegetation from overgrown paths and replace missing and wornout footpath signs. If you would like to help keep our paths open and accessible, do join us!
