Longer Walks

Longer walks, of between 12 -17 miles, are being arranged as it was felt that the Northumbria Area would like to broaden their offerings to include these long distance walks in the programme.

The walks take place on last Saturday of every month.    If the walks prove to be popular, they will be arranged more frequently.  For further information, please contact Neil Allender by email
