Northumbria Walking Group

Our group was originally founded to encourage younger walkers into the Ramblers community but we have no age limits. This just means most of our walks and events are focused around the weekends and evenings.

Most years we get out to Hadrian’s Wall, the Cheviots, the Northumberland coast, North Yorkshire and the Tyne valley. Walks range from short 5-8 mile easy rambles to longer 11-16 mile full-day hill walks.

There are regular weekends away further a field to places such as the Lake District, Loch Lomond, the Yorkshire Dales and Snowdonia. Occasionally we have gone overseas.

Members are based in Newcastle and the surrounding areas such as Durham, Sunderland and Northumberland. Social events include regular pub nights and meals out.

Our calendar of events is run from our private Facebook group but a summary is available on our public Facebook page. The Northumbria Walking Group is part of the Ramblers. Find out more about joining or coming on trial walks with us.

Members and walkers are reminded that they attend walks with this group at their own risk and they are responsible for their own personal safety.
