Walk to Wellbeing in Northumberland National Park
Get out and get healthy in Northumberland National Park with our Walk to Wellbeing Programme.
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. The climb at the start of the walk is rewarded with excellent views of the Coquet Valley. A lovely combination of forest and heather moorland walking at a time when the heather will be at its best.
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 please book the correct ticket below – 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.
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 with you. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this walk. If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival at the walk start point.
Distance: 4 miles
Terrain: Steady steep climb at start. Rough paths. Some stiles.
Meeting place/walk start point: Harbottle Castle Car Park, Harbottle, Northumberland
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.
