We are a walking and outdoor activities group based on Tyneside. The group was formerly Newcastle local YHA group. We regularly walk in the Northumberland and Durham area, usually on Sundays; the walks are between 7 and 12 miles.
If you would like details of a walk then please e-mail tynewalks at gmail.com or phone Sandy at 07779836610.
The group has a strong social element and we organize regular pub nights and restaurant meals.
Our events calendar will show you what we are doing over the next few months. Prospective members are welcome to attend several events before deciding whether to join.
Walks are led by an experienced leader but please remember that everyone is responsible for their own safety and being properly equipped. Please bring walking boots, waterproofs, cold weather clothing including a hat and gloves or a sun hat and sunscreen as appropriate. Don't forget a packed lunch and drink. Walks usually include a pub or cafe stop.
Most of the walks are accessed by private car and members try to share car and fuel costs whenever possible. Some coach trips are organised to venture further in the longer summer days.
