All-terrain walk

A MIXTURE of terrains will be covered in an all-day walk by Morpeth Footpaths Society.

The group will take a coach to Scots Gap on Sunday, where members will begin a nine-and-a-half mile walk to Elsdon.

The route, led by John Mountain, will cover part of the old railway trackbed, some open country and some forest walking, before the descent to Elsdon. It is not expected to be too strenuous and participants should take a picnic.

The coach will leave the Riverside Leisure Centre at 9.30am, with fares of £6 payable on the day. It is due to return to Morpeth at 4pm.

For more information or to book a seat call Mieke Pickard on 01670 514615.
