Exploring Greenhaugh Hay Meadows W2W

Event date:
18th June 2022
Greenhaugh Village

Join this walk and marvel at the blaze of colour and abundance of meadow flowers in one of the best hay meadows in the Northumberland National Park. We walk from the village of Greenhaugh, and then through meadows looking out for Orchids, Yellow Rattle, the Melancholy Thistle and other rare and stunning flowers on the way.

We will walk alongside the Tarset Burn, up over farmland with fine views over and around the historic and vibrant Tarset valley. Throughout the walk we will listen and watch out for birdlife and signs of earlier habitation in this historic area.

We will end back at The Holly Bush Inn in Greenhaugh for refreshments.

West Tynedale Ramblers Wellbeing Walk Leaders and National Park Volunteers have designed walks suitable for people wanting an introduction to the inspirational landscapes of Northumberland National Park. Whilst still more challenging than urban walks, our friendly leaders have chosen easier routes and will walk at a pace suitable for all.
