Long and short walks planned by group

Morpeth Footpaths Society

An all-day coach trip to Brampton for walks in the Cumbria Tarns and Pennine foothills will take place on Sunday.

The walk will be in two sections – a short walk of five miles or a long walk of 11 miles – and those coming along can join for either walk.

The five-mile route is a fairly gentle trek to Talkin village. The coach collects here, with an option to spend the afternoon in Brampton or Lanercost Priory tearooms.

In contrast, the 11-mile walk also includes a climb of 381m to Talkin Fell before descending to the beautiful Pennine Foothills.

A free coach will set off at 8.30am from the Morrison’s car park off Dark Lane, not outside the Riverside Leisure Centre as originally planned.

This is a members-only walk, but new members of all ages are welcome subject to paying the joining fee beforehand. Call Val Lisgo on 01670 517085 for more information.
