Greenhaugh Car Park

A new introduction to the NNP walks progarmme. Join us for a short walk from Greenhaugh where we’ll stop for a quick sketch at Tarset Burn. Then across open country, to Thorneyburn Old Rectory which is the home of the world renowned Unison Colour Soft Pastels. Here we’ll find out how the pastels are made by hand every step of the way, even having the opportunity to perhaps roll a pastel yourself! To find out more, visit unison colour’s website here.

Following the visit we’ll pay a quick visit to St Aidan’s church and it beautiful stained glass window before heading back to Greenhaugh, taking in the view across the North Tyne valley.
