So many people want to walk from Hartside to Newbiggin (Walk 19 on Saturday 4th May) that we have  put on a second coach with a second team to do the walk. Please book as soon as you can for this walk by contacting Bradsons. One group will start 30 minutes after the other.

There will be an extra long walk on Sunday May 5th.

“Lands to the north of Brocolitia”

will be an 11.5 mile circular over open access land with great views.

It will be walk 22a, Grade strenuous and £7 walk fee. Details here.


We have decided to move from a land line to a mobile ‘phone for when you want to text us or speak to us. We hope this will offer more flexibility on both sides.

Our new ‘phone number is 07565 967852

If possible, please contact us by text on this number. The ‘phone will be checked daily for messages. In the run up to festivals, someone will be available to answer your calls. Emails are checked daily too. Expect an answer in 24 - 48 hours.
