Mostly flat but with some steps and gradients.

Join us for this delightful 8 mile walk from the Northumberland village of Ovingham, up through the beautiful woodland of Whittle Dene, discovering the wooden houses hidden in the woods and exploring the undulating river. After heading up through this picturesque spot, we'll take a bridge over the A69 and set course across open farmland towards Welton Hall. On the way back, we'll look over the Dene from the top. We'll try and hunt down a cup of tea and a scone to round off the day.

There are a few steeper gradients but it is mostly flat and the walk should be accessible to most hikers. There are one or two muddy spots on the path so walking boots are a great idea.
