Northumberland’s Tyne Valley: Corbridge Grade: Leisurely
A series of short day walks in the beautiful Tyne Valley between Thursday 6 and Sunday 9 May. These walks will all include a stretch walking alongside the River Tyne as well as scenic trails through farmland, woodland and quiet country lanes.
The walks will be held on four consecutive days which would suit anyone wanting to come and stay in the Tyne Valley for a few days, as well as those living in the North East or Cumbria.
Each of the walks is graded as leisurely and will be 3 ½ – 4 ½ miles long. We’ll be going at an easy pace, stopping to look at the views, plants and wildlife, take photos etc and we will have a break. Bring a packed lunch which we can eat during the walk or at the end. On most of the walks there will be cafes available at the end of the walk
This leisurely walk takes in a mixture of riverside, woodland, fields and a quiet country lane before we meander back along Devil’s Water and the River Tyne. There are some great views of Corbridge from Ladycutters Lane after a steady gentle uphill stretch.
Once a Roman garrison town, Corbridge is an attractive, thriving village, with many buildings of stone taken from the Roman town of Corstopitum on its outskirts. There is a variety of tempting small shops and cafes so be sure to leave time to explore after our walk.
Grade: Leisurely. The walk is 4 miles with few gradients and is taken at a very leisurley pace in order to enjoy the surroundings to the full.
