walk summary

This lovely walk explores the landscape around the West Dipton Burn as you pass through some quite spectacular wooded gorges, with just the burn for company. Just a short distance from Hexham, Northumberland it is a super medium length walk on some lovely footpaths.


After crossing a footbridge at the far end of the walk you climb steeply out of the gorge and pass back through some contrasting farmland scenery, before dropping back to the famous Dipton Inn, serving its own brewed beers.


Make the most of this, we don't have many pub walks in Northumberland.


On the final stretch of the walk you pass through Letah Woods, owned and wonderfully maintained by the Woodland Trust, which really is the icing on the cake for this walk.


The walk is good underfoot, but strong shoes are recommended.

shepherd's notes

A great walk which has a pub right near to the end of it.


A lovely area in Northumberland and one of the few walks we have that you can stop for a pint on your way round.
