To all walking group members, here is some information for our walk at Plessey Woods on Friday 5th May.
Driving directions: Follow A19 North through Tyne Tunnel and continue on A19 until he roundabout just before joining the A1. Take 4th exit A1068 (next exit past services) signposted Bedlington, and continue on this road straight on over 2 roundabouts until you reach Hartford Bank where the road dips down and turns left over Hartford Bridge. Immediately after the bridge take next left onto Shields Road signposted Plessey Woods Country Park and Morpeth. Follow the road for 200 yards and car park is signposted on the left.
Parking is free and we’ll meet in the car park at 11:00. Unfortunately the cafe only opens weekends and school holidays, so please bring a packed lunch. Toilets are available at visitor centre near car park. Walk is moderate and lasts approx. 1.5 – 2.0 hrs. I suggest we have our lunch after walk but, we can stop half way for a break and refreshment if required. Any questions or problems please call me on 07818034615.
