Pull on your walking boots

A NEW series of unique Northumberland walks takes place this year, starting this weekend.

Hillguide Roy Kennard and photographer Andy Craig are combining their respective skills to offer guided hill walks together with photographic tuition.

On each of the PhotoHillwalks, stops will be made along the way for Roy to discuss the surrounding history and landscapes and for Andy to offer insights into photographic techniques.

The first is a five-hour walk in the Breamish Valley on Sunday, starting at 10.15am. It costs £40 and participants should meet at Ingram Car Park.Two more walks will take place in the Breamish Valley in July and August, while there will be two exploring Goatscrag in September and October.

For more information about the walks and to book, call Andy on 01665 576012 or Roy on 07932 006421.
