Five Fantastic Winter Walks With Pubs at the End
The Quarry Walk
This circular walk of nearly eight miles, starting at Stanhope, takes in some of the historic quarry works which are dotted over the beautiful, heather-clad Durham moors, and gives a fascinating insight into Weardale’s industrial past.
In The Borders
The land between Northumberland and Scotland is some of the most remotely beautiful in the country. Often with a dusting of snow or frost in winter, this walk covers a total distance of nine miles starting and finishing at Morebattle, and there are plenty of expansive views over the rolling Scottish Borders and the Merse of Scotland.
Lambley Viaduct, Featherstone Castle and the South Tyne Trail
This easy to follow circular route is approximately five and a half miles long, full of interest and notable landmarks, including the mighty Lambley Viaduct and Featherstone Castle, originally built as a manor house in the 11th century.
The Wannie Line Walk
This circular walk takes you along both the Wannie and Rothbury disused railway lines as they cross Wallington Estate. Once busy carrying stone, lime, coal and cattle, as well as passengers, these railways have long since been abandoned and reclaimed by nature.
