One of the best....

After hiking Hadrians Wall, Kielder Forest, and various other routes around Northumberland and basically walking our legs off, we decided we wanted a gentler walk. This one ticked all our boxes.

Parking at the NT carpark, which is incredibly reasonable at £4, we took off on the 'brown walk', which was mostly well signed (a a bit of common sense needed on a couple of occasions where posts were missing/broken). It is a little rocky underfoot so walking shoes are advisable, but it is a well marked track where our furry pals can run wild to their heart's content.

We diverted off the path to have a swing over the river (see photo) and took a further diversion at Plankey Mill to extend the walk through the forest and along the river for a picturesque lunch stop at Cupola Bridge.

Moses, our 9 year old Sproodle, acted like a 9 month old on this walk; dashing into the river at every opportune moment; clambering up steep banks in the vain hope of bagging a squirrel, and vaulting over fallen tree logs. He was living his best life! We thoroughly enjoyed it and declared it one of the best off-lead walks we had been on, with no sheep-poo on the menu for Moses or livestock to worry about. A fab day out!
