Ideas for walks to lead

Choosing a walk to lead with Alnwick Ramblers should not be difficult as there are some clear favourite walks over the years.

A favourite walk needs -  good parking at the start, clear footpaths, shelter for lunch and comfort breaks, and to be the right length; 7 to 8 miles is the clear favourite length although we have some at 5 and six miles. A favourite walk will often be in a walk book, which makes working out the route much easier, AND finding the OS reference to send in to our walks coordintor. A walk book will usually quote the OS ref at the start of the walk too.
