Chance to take part in society’s big walk



Members of Morpeth Footpaths Society will meet for a celebration walk on Sunday to mark its 40th anniversary.

The 10-mile route, starting at Morpeth Rugby Club at 10am, will take in the riverside and woodlands that surround Morpeth – from Scotch Gill Woods and Bluebell Woods to Cottingwood Common. Visitors of all ages are welcome. There will be opportunities to leave at various intervals for those preferring a shorter walk.
