W2W - The Legendary Drake Stone Guided Walk
- Event date:
- 14th August 2021
- Forestry England car park, Harbottle Forest
Our Walk to Wellbeing Programme is the easy way to get out and get healthy in Northumberland National Park.
West Tynedale Health Walk Leaders have designed and are leading walks suitable for people wanting an easy introduction to the inspirational landscapes of Northumberland National Park.
The upper Coquet valley was guarded by the Drake Stone long before it was guarded by Harbottle Castle, and its 2 000 tonne mass still looms over the valley. The walk will visit the Drake Stone and hear of its legendary powers, before visiting Harbottle Lake, one of the features of the Nature Reserve.
From there, through conifer woods and estate roads the route returns to the valley and the meadows along the River Coquet. We follow the left bank of the Coquet downstream, with views to Harbottle Castle, before turning to Harbottle village and then to the car park.
