Event Reports from North East Group


Lunedale and Mickleton Moor – 16th September 2018

30 Sep 2018 | North East Group

Eighteen of us gathered on a reasonably bright morning at the edge of Grassholme, one of a series of reservoirs supplying Teesdale with its domestic water and a good base for exploring some of the surrounding hills, moorland and views. We’ve become quite familiar with this area, and we like to come back as it offers a varied mix of different walking routes, from the relatively low-level between attractive villages along the Tees valley to the quite wild areas of open moorland favoured by some of our more adventurous participants....

Robin Hood’s Bay to Sleights – 19th August 2018

12 Sep 2018 | North East Group

Our group sometimes makes good use of local buses as part of our events: buses offer advantages in enabling us to see more of the countryside, they can be a convivial way to travel, you can organise a one-way walk that doesn’t have to end where it started, and supporting local buses helps to make them more sustainable for everyone.

Saltburn and East Cleveland – 15th July 2018

28 Jul 2018 | North East Group

With a knowledgeable resident to guide us the station was a good place to start, as we learned historically the town of Saltburn was a creation of the railway, indeed the country’s first railway town....

Deerness and Browney Country – 17th June 2018

30 Jun 2018 | North East Group

In the very diverse range of landscapes, walking routes and meeting venues that the north east of England has to offer, our group sometimes gathers in some quite remote places around the region. On this occasion however we chose to meet at Durham bus station, a more accessible location particularly beneficial for public transport users. We were able to welcome 14 eager participants for a day that started with a bus journey into the surrounding countryside with fine hill-top views in all directions including back towards the city....
