Back to Morpeth

The route back to Morpeth again follows the course of the river Wansbeck passing through parks, streets and roads steeped in history.  Overall this particular route is about 5-6 miles, although it is worth noting that Morpeth, as a market place for drovers (the droving routes cross the Cheviots via Clennell Street and Alwinton) used to have the highest concentration of ale houses and the ‘Joiners Arms’ notably carries on the fine tradition of excellent ales.
