A Walk

Haydon Bridge to Bardon Mill

8 Miles Grade 3

Leader: Graham Bell

I still have Fred the dog staying with me which is why I have missed a few walks.   However, if anyone wants to join me and Fred,  meet at The Sands at 9.15 or park at Gelt Woods, walk to Talkin Tarn, Brampton Junction, Dandy Woods and return, I would be happy to lead.   About 8 miles, Grade 4, I guess.




































Coach Walk:Rosehill:8.50am Sands:9.00am




This is an easy and relatively short 'A' walk. 


After climbing out of Haydon Bridge the walk will follow a ridge eastwards to the Langley Castle Hotel from where we carry on westwards to Lees Farm.


Continuing west we walk through Morralee Wood to reach the east bank of the River Allen which is followed south as far as Plankey Mill.


After crossing the Allen at Plankey we head west once again for the last two miles to Bardon  Mill where the village tea shop will be on 'red alert'.

C Walk

Haltwhistle Area

6 Miles Grade 4

Leader: John McKay
































Coach Walk:Rosehill:8.50am Sands:9.00am




We will depart from Haltwhistle Station and walk the old Alston-Haltwhistle Line as far as the A69 at which point we will leave the railway for now and take the footpath to Bellister Castle and after field walking we will arrive at Featherstone Castle at which point we will be visiting the old PoW camp although not much remains now.


We will then continue the walk to Lambley Viaduct and our lunch stop and after the climb up onto the viaduct that will be the climbing over for the day.


After lunch we will follow the former Alston-Haltwhistle railway line all the way back to Haltwhistle and back across the 4 arches viaduct back to Haltwhistle station and refreshments in the town.


Not a hard walk, approximately 8/9 miles, Grade 3/4 and MUD!!

















We head south out of Haltwhistle passing under the A69

and make our way across fields and through woods 

to the footbridge opposite Featherstone Castle where we cross the South Tyne. At this point we have a choice, if we are feeling good we can continue south to visit the site of the old POW camp before turning north back towards Haltwhistle.

This would add about another 1.5 miles to the walk.

If we are not feeling good we can turn north at the footbridge

and make our way past Featherstone Castle to pick up the old railway line which will take us back into Haltwhistle.

Which ever route we take it will be a nice flat gentle walk.

No doubt we will encounter some mud along the way,

it's unavoidable at this time of year
