Walk the Northumberland coast path

Posted on 25th June 2014 | in Community , Heritage & Tourism , What's On

The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership is offering the chance to walk the Northumberland Coast Path with the path originator, Iain Robson.

On the Wednesdays between the 16 July and 20 August, Iain will lead a walk along a section of the path in the company of a coastal expert: botanist, geologist, ranger or birdwatcher. You can do any section/s

The start time for each section coincides with the arrival of a bus and we will return to our starting point by bus.

The walks are all free, but you will need your bus fare. We have given brief public transport information, but you can plan your journey at www.travelinenortheast.info

Booking is essential, you can book by phone on 01670 622660 or by email to coastaonb@northumberland.gov.uk
