Stroll from country to coast

MORPETH walkers will meet close to home for their next outing.

Morpeth Footpaths Society will follow a route from Ashington to Newbiggin, setting off from the car park of Queen Elizabeth II Country Park.

The five-and-a-half-mile trail, which is led by Chris Philips, will go alongside the lake to Newbiggin sea front and return via Woodhorn Church and Museum. It is described as flat and easy, with good paths.

The walk takes place on Sunday, starting at 11am.
