THE hard work will pay off for Morpeth walkers with fine views expected from their next outing.
Morpeth Footpaths Society will tackle a nine-and-a-half mile route from Rothbury to Simonside on Sunday, but members are being warned that the trek will be strenuous, taking in forest and hills.
It will be led by Tom Lisgo and is expected to take five hours to complete.
Participants should meet at the Tourist Information Centre in Rothbury at 10.30am.
