Friday 8th May 2020 Isaac's Tea Trail. Today we begin our three-day adventure; walkers will travel by coach from Haltwhistle to and from the start and end each day.
This year we are following Isaac’s Tea Trail, a 35 mile long-distance walk inspired by the tale of Isaac Holden. Isaac was born in 1805 near Ninebanks, just south of Haltwhistle, and made his living selling the then luxury item of tea in the North Pennines. Not only a tea seller, Isaac was a local philanthropist, and the Trail takes you to some of the places he lived and also to the legacies of his fundraising.
We will be taking two groups on each of the three days, each group starting and ending in a slightly different place separated by 3 miles. You will be informed of the group you are in before the Festival begins, and you must take careful note of precise joining instructions.
Book for one or more days. When booking, please indicate clearly if you wish to walk with other members of your party.
