Next U3A Hill Walk Wednesday 18 March
The next U3A hill walk will take place on Wednesday 18th March, and it will be slightly more challenging than the recent coastal walks. We will be doing a circuit of Hepburn Moor & Bewick Moor, starting from verge parking at the side of the minor road just below Ros Castle hill. We'll be walking on open moorland on tracks & paths, with some pathless sections through heather. Undulating, with no real hills, with lovely views on a clear day. Around 9 1/2 miles in total.
Meet at 9.00 at the bottom of the steps up to Berwick Infirmary in the Castlegate Car Park, or at 9.45 at the walk start point. From Berwick take the A1 south beyond Belford, then take the B6348 right to Chatton. Once through Chatton go left onto a minor road signposted to Chillingham. Go through Chillingham and at the end of the wall on your left, take a left onto a single track road signposted to Hepburn. Go through Hepburn farm, cross cattle grid, and drive up hill. After about 1 1/2 miles in total on this minor road, the slope levels off, so park here on the verge, with Ros Castle hill to your left.
Can you let me know nearer the time whether you will be coming, and if you require, or can offer, a lift.
