Stepping out

WALKERS from Morpeth Footpaths Society will face a challenging trek at their next outing.

The group will take on a 10-mile uphill walk in the Cheviots.

The route, led by Janice Morgan, will start at Hawsen Burn, pass along the top of the hills, then follow the burn down. Walkers need to cross the water several times and members have been warned the trail is not for the faint hearted.

It is expected to take six hours to complete.

The society will set out on Sunday, at 10am.

Participants should park on the grass verge near Langleeford, just before the sheepfold.
