Holy Island

22 May @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

May’s event is a run through the beautiful North-Northumberland’s un-spoilt landscape including hopping across St. Oswald’s Way, across Hadrian’s Wall and the Northumberland 250 route. Meet at 9:45 for a 10:00 departure at Wentworth car park, NE46 1RN. We start in Hexham a beautiful town with a nice history, then going through Hadrian’s wall (I mean we go over it) and off North-Easterly towards Alnwick via Rothbury. Along the way you go past two outstanding National Trust properties, Wallington Hall – watch out for the gargoyles, and Cragside- home to some of the most beautiful natural woodlands (you may even see some red squirrels). From there you will climb up Cordy Crags, this is a beautiful stretch of road looking Northwest towards the Cheviot’s and over to Scotland. This part of the route is also famous, as it was used as a movie poster, in The Hobbit, the question is can you spot it? From there through Alnwick- home to Hogwarts, over The Lion Bridge on to the A1 and then up to “Barn at Beal” for lunch. After lunch you can then make your way across the causeway (open until 19:20) to the Island, or you can make your own plans to explore more of the area. Whatever you do, this trip is one not to be missed and we look forward to seeing everyone at the start! “Gan Canny.”
