Walks in the North East

 

This page is a new page dedicated to walks and climbs in the North East of England, but we will include some walks in The Borders of Scotland and Cumbria. some Great Ideas for Days out with videos and cometary in the North East will fill this page. 

Chopwell Woods


A circular walk through the woods to the waterfall, mill and viewpoints of the river and Tyne valley. We took a 3 mile walk, but there are longer ones.

 

Watergate Forest Park in Whickham, Gateshead. 

This is a circular walk that leads to a viewpoint of Gateshead and the Team Valley. A wooded area, a lake and a man-made waterfall. It was an old Colliery that was transformed to a beautiful walk for the public. With a large car park. There are an abundance of paths, but the circular walk is roughly 3 miles in total.   

Hareshaw Linn Waterfall Trail throught the Woods in Bellingham Northumberland. 

A guided walk to Hareshaw Linn waterfall in Bellingham Northumberland. Well worth the journey. The River has many bridges and waterfalls leading to the main one. Once you reach the Lin, you are surrounded by a shallow cavern to have a cupa while looking at the scene in awe.

Bedlington Country Park River Blyth Walk Humford Mill

A surprisingly long walk along the River Blyth at Bedlington. We walked 6 miles in total and only visited a section of the river walk. You can visit many other parts of this wood and follow th river to plessey woods and Stannington. We finished the walk at the Weir in Humford Woods. If we had continued walking about a half mile or so we would have reached Hartford Hall and Golf Course.  I recommend combining this walk with Plessey Woods, But this will be included in future Videos.

Washington James Steele Park Circular River Walk: 

A 3 mile ish walk along the Wear from Mount Pleasant lake to Cox Green. After crossing the bridge at Cox Green follow the path along the river under the Viaduct and back to mount Pleasant. Nice short walk and all on the flat.. 95% wooded area,

 Simonside Hills Red Walk:

A tour of the red walk at Simonside Hills. We visit the Summit, Little Church Rock and the Coin Tree. 

The Beacon: Simonside Hills. Rothbury 

This is a quick climb with tremendous views of the Cheviot hills, Rothbury, Cragside and the Northumberland Coast. You can see as far as Sunderland on a clear day. 

The Ouseburn Parks, Jesmond Dene Waterfall, Heaton Park, Armstrong Park.

A walk that starts at Heaton Park car park and visits the curiosities of Armstrong Park. Jesomond Dene waterfall and pets corner are also visited.
