Walk to Wellbeing – Falstone & Kielder Reservoir

Date: 8th September 2017
Time: 12:00 pm  to  5:00 pm

Walk to Wellbeing in Northumberland National Park

Get out and get healthy in Northumberland National Park with our Walk to Wellbeing Programme.

Walking to Old Roses Bower

Northumberland National Park and Active Northumberland are working with Healthy Walks leaders to design walks suitable for people wanting an easy introduction to the inspirational landscapes of Northumberland National Park.

All walks are led by West Tynedale Health Walk trained volunteers.

This walk starts from the meeting place/point below at 1pm.  This is easy walk in the vicinity of Kielder, Europe’s largest man-made lake and forest. Our route takes in spectacular views, interesting sculptures and perhaps a red squirrel if we are lucky.

Limited shared transport is available at £6 a seat on this walk.  The pick-up point for this bus will be at Wentworth Car Park beside Wentworth Leisure Centre at the start time of  12noon.  Booking for this is essential so when booking is open please book the correct ticket – with or without transport.

Please note that the end time is approximate only, as the walk rate will be that of the slowest walker.  We would envisage returning to Wentworth car park at approximately 5pm.

We can quite often end the walk with a visit to a local cafe or pub (the costs here are your own!) but if the bus is waiting to transport you home you may have to forego this.

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.

Our new website and booking system are currently in development – if you wish to put your name on a list to be notified when bookings are open for this event, please contact our Activities Support Officer – trudygraham@nnpa.org.uk / 01434 611505.  Tickets will be £10.00 (including transport); £4.00 (walk only).

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks with you. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk.   If it is a warm day, midge repellent may be useful!  If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival at the walk start point.

Distance: 4 miles

Terrain:  Fields, tracks & forest tracks.

Meeting place/walk start point: Falstone Old School Tearooms, Falstone, Hexham, NE48 1AA

Postcode: NE48 1AA

For those wishing to use GPS/Sat-Nav to find walk start points please note that, particularly in open country, postcodes cover a large area, so, whilst the postcode will get you to the right general area, you will still need to follow the detailed directions to locate the actual Walk Start Point.
