Walking Group September walks
September 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 24, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
NEE Walking Group, September walks, 23rd -24th September 2017
In September we are once again offering two consecutive days, this time in Northumberland. You can opt to do either or both of the days on offer but if you want to walk both days, and stay over for the Saturday night you will need to arrange your own accommodation. This year the two walks will be based in Wooler. Camping is available at Highburn House campsite, on the Friday and Saturday nights. The price is £16 per night for two adults ( or £8 for one ) + tent and car and each extra adult is £3. You will need to pre-book this site if you want to be assured of a pitch.
See website for more details: http://www.highburn-house.co.uk
There is also a YHA nearby in Wooler and a variety of pubs and B&B’s for those who would rather not camp.
The walks for each day will be subject to weather conditions and are not ‘set in stone’ but both ML/L3 and L2 walks are possible from the campsite, or a short drive away. The most likely walk is Cheviot itself but there are also a number of other possibilities for both high and low level walks .The walks will start from the campsite and we will meet at the entrance at 9.15am for a 9.30am start.
How to take part: Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
by the end of July with your details and choices to the questions below:
I will be attending Saturday / Sunday / all weekend
Likely to stay overnight : yes / no
Able to offer transport : to the event yes / no
on the day yes / no
Preferred walk level option: High / low / other
This is just to give an idea of the interest level for both the weekend and the different days walks.
We will then e-mail you in late August/early September for a definite commitment when we will also ask for home contacts and details of next of kin etc. If you have any specific walks you would like to complete please let us know.
