Walk ups and downs

THERE’S a nine-mile challenge for walkers this weekend.

Morpeth Footpaths Society will ramble along Green Side and the Lord’s Seat on Sunday.

The walk, which will be led by Derek Gander, will include six stiles and ascents and descents.

It is expected to take about five hours.

Participants should meet near the bridge at Shillmoor at 10am.
