Group name: Ponteland
This group is a part of Northumbria Area.
Ramblers groups help people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
Ponteland Group offers walks on alternate Sundays and on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Walks are mostly circular with car sharing (if required) from the meeting point to the start of the walk. Sunday walks range from 7 to 9 miles and always include a picnic stop. Wednesday walks range from 5 to 8 miles and sometimes offer the option of a pub lunch after the walk.

MINCE PIE WALK
Plenty of mince pies, not much walking.

Our Sunday group by the River Wansbeck. This walk was originally scheduled for a December day when, to stand at this point, would have required SCUBA equipment.
