The walks, laid on by Active Northumberland, are suitable for all levels of ability and take between half an hour and an hour and a half.

Jordan Bell, health and fitness manager for Active Northumberland said: “Going for regular walks is one of the simplest and easiest ways to become more active and improve your health. Some of our walks are short and very gentle so if you’ve had problems with your health or are new to walking we’ll help you to get started.

“With National Walking Month taking place throughout May, now is a great time to put your best foot forward and reap the benefits of a healthier lifestyle.”
