Five go off to Belsay (Northumberland) March 30th
Lockdown in England has been eased slightly, we are allowed to meet in groups of six or with two families. The team could only muster five, Margaret, Brian, John H, John Ha and me and we are meeting at Belsay for an easy country walk.
Belsay is a small village with a big hall and castle. From Newcastle drive through Ponteland on the A696 and after about five miles you meet the village. As you reach the village there is a large gate, the entrance to Belsay Hall and grounds but turn left instead of entering and there is a small parking area opposite the Blacksmiths Coffee Shop. The cafe is currently open for take away drinks and cakes and very nice it is too.
The walk is covered by OS Explorer 316 Newcastle upon Tyne
