Low Newton and Beadnell is one of the best beach walks in Northumberland. Low Newton-by-the-Sea is a gorgeous little old traditional fishing village. It’s a great starting point for a walk up the coast and the coast here is stunning. Beadnell Bay is amazing and probably very underrated. So much so that we needed to have a walk here.Continue reading “Low Newton and Beadnell – 22 August 2020”

We’ve been walking in the Rothbury area for many years. It is beautiful and, even very close to Rothbury, there are plenty of very varied routes. So, for this one, we tried to take the best of all the routes, but avoiding the most challenging paths.
I think we achieved that, and the weather just added to the joy of the walk. Everything was perfect.Continue reading “Around Rothbury – 8th August 2020”

The Craster and Howick walk is stunning. It has so many different parts to it. It starts off with a little nature reserve and then crosses fields, some with animals in. Eventually it returns to the coast, with smells of the sea and the sound of seabirds.Continue reading “Craster and Howick – 4 July 2020”
The Getting Back to Nordic Walking Beach Walk was our first walk back together following the Covid-19 pandemic. When we asked everyone where they would like the first walk to be the answer was overwhelming. The beach at Cresswell.Continue reading “Getting back to Nordic Walking Beach Walk – 27 June 2020”
The Christmas walk is a very special walk for us for a few reasons. The first and most important one for us is that it marks the anniversary of the first Strolls with Poles walk in 2017. If we look back at the photographs from the 3 walks we can see a lot of the same faces, most we see regularly during the year however there are a few we don’t see as often as well as those who are new to Strolls with Poles. Everyone regardless of the frequency of them joining us are always assured of a warm and friendly welcome.
The second reason is that it is “usually” our last walk of the year (this year we had an extra one in December). Regardless, this is a great time for us to thank everyone for their support throughout the year.
The third reason is that it is one of the few walks that is repeated every year. As such it is known as our Annual Christmas Walk. The walk always takes us up to the Christmas Tree on Simonside.Continue reading “The Christmas Walk – 7th December 2019”
