Haltwhistle Rings Relaunch

Between 2019 and 2020, the 22 original Haltwhistle Rings Walks have all been rewalked, checked, rerouted where necessary and repairs requested from the Council as required. A fantastic editorial job has been done and all the updated walks are just waiting for you here

Some of these walks use open access land. You can find more information on the ‘right to roam’, including any local closures, here. (Link to external site)
