magnificant meadows and babbling burns

Ranger’s favourite walk – Poems, Meadows and Burns

Date: 2nd July 2017
Time: 10:30 am  to  12:30 pm

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

Greenhaugh By Simon Fraser.

One of the Ranger’s favorite walks, this follows a circular route passing magnificent meadows and babbling burns.  There will be an opportunity to hear one of Simon Armitage’s Poems in the Air.  Maybe you will be inspired to write your own poem.

This is an easy walk suitable for most walkers, but there are some short ascents and descents.

To avoid disappointment we do 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.  Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk.
