Biddlestone Winter Walk

Event date:
3rd November 2021
Biddlestone Chapel

Join us for a good winter walk over open moorland on the edge of the Cheviots.

Starting on the roadside at Biddlestone our walk passes through woodland before emerging onto open moorland before climbing Loundon Hill at approximately 1000ft.

From here we traverse open moorland which affords excellent views up to the Kidland Forest to the north and to Alnwick and the coast in the east. Give us a song as you pass “Sing Moor" as we descend to our Starting point. We will then adjourn to the Star Inn at Harbottle for a warm cuppa!!

Booking essential.
