The 13 best walks in Northumberland, according to Morpeth man David Steel, founder of Plan Watch Walk

A Morpeth man has taken his love for walking to the next level by creating several online resources to encourage people to get outdoors and explore Northumberland.

David Steel has devised a range of hikes which are available online, which vary in length and difficulty depending on your fitness levels.

On top of this, the different routes can also be viewed on YouTube, so you can see in advance the beauty spots which are dotted along the way.

Working with Ordnance Survey and its GPS system, David’s main aim is to motivate people to get out and about and explore beautiful spots in Northumberland which they might not have been aware of.

He said: “There is just so much to take in and you don’t have to be particularly high in Northumberland to see cracking views.”
