North East Associates
Chollerford and Humshaugh Walk

- Wednesday 21st February –

Seventeen P&G walkers met up in Humshaugh village centre on a brilliant sunny winter's morning - blue skies and no wind to spoil things.

We set off directly north from the village following the public footpath across undulating pasture and joining a minor country lane heading towards the North Tyne at Haughton Castle - not quite visible itself by being hidden in a dip in the landscape.

At this point our route swung due west past Wester Hall, with the River Tyne running parallel to us to the north, set low down in a deep cut valley.

We continued westwards past Coldwell, eventually reaching Keepershield - a very 'muddy corner' - where we joined the main Chollerford to Wark road for a short section and turned south, but avoided walking along the road by walking in the adjoining fields.

We crossed the road and headed past Heatheridge Farmstead, a well-managed, prosperous looking enterprise - and then on to Heatheridge Cottages.

All along this section, the views to the north across the Tyne valley towards the Northumberland National Park were wonderful.

Our route then continued south along a well-marked bridleway bordering a fast flowing stream, eventually reaching the little settlement of Walwick, where we joined the Chollerford road, turned east and walked past Chesters Roman Fort to Chollerford.

The last bit took us northwards back into Humshaugh village - a circular trip of nearly six miles in 2½ hours.

The sun was still shining as we entered the Crown Inn for a splendid lunch, being joined by some stalwart P&G 'lunch partners'.

‘The Crown’, along with the village shop, is being run on a community basis, and the staff gave us a wonderful welcome!
