Cragside Challenge Walk
Sun 26th June 2011
Saturday saw the first ever 13 mile Cragside Challenge Walk.
After a wet start the sun came out and it turned into a lovely day.
The demanding course covered both sides of the Coquet Valley, firstly heading up over the Carriageway Drive, before dropping down to Thropton.
After crossing the Coquet the participants then headed up past Tosson Lime Kiln to the top of Simonside (the proper way to climb Simonside, from the bottom).
After following the ridge down to Lordenshaws everybody continued back down to Rothbury, before following the River coquet back to Cragside and what a superb finish as the walkers passed through this stunning estate.
A great day was had by all.
