Date: 28th May 2017
Time: 10:00 am  to  2:00 pm

Join one of our National Park Rangers on one of their favourite walks in Northumberland National Park.

Kirknewton Festival 2014

Join Ranger Shaun Hackett on this springtime walk around the woodlands and streams of Kirknewton when all the sights, signs and smells of spring will be on show.

Whilst this walk is fairly short, please note that paths may be rough or uneven with some short ascents and descents.

To avoid disappointment we recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The booking for the event will close before the event takes place, often on the afternoon of the last working day prior to the event.  There may still be tickets available; unless this event shows either that booking is essential or that tickets are “sold out” you may still be able to attend simply by turning up on the day.  However, do note that places are always allocated on a first come first served basis because of number restrictions.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks/lunch (there will be a picnic stop for lunch).  Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk.
