Saturday walk for society

Morpeth Footpaths Society

THE society will be meeting for a 10-mile circular walk from Rothbury to Lordenshaw and Simonside on Saturday.

The walk, which will take between four and five hours, is steep in parts with some rough ground and features a mixture of farmland, hillside and forest.

Meet at 11am in the Cowhaugh car park on the south side of the river in Rothbury. Visitors of all ages are welcome, although no dogs are allowed.
