Another beautiful day in February took us to Lesbury. We all met at the big tree in Lesbury and welcomed Kath to her first Strolls with Poles walk.
As always we started with a warm up and set off. We crossed Lesbury Bridge which dates to the late 1500 or early 1600s. Early in the walk we came across a couple of small hills which take us down to the river and passed the viaduct which has the East Coast Train line running across it.
Following the river we reached Bilton Mill. We came to the railway line which is in the process of being renovated to take the train from Alnmouth Station to Alnwick. We dropped down to the short section we would have to walk along before coming to the woodland. The group had got quite stretched and the back group were so busy chatting they didn’t see which route Martin had taken. Julie caught them up and turned them around and crossed the river, which was very low, so easy to cross.
We crossed over fields where we spotted 2 hares who started fighting. Definitely a sign of the Mad March Hares. A woodpecker was seen by some of the group too.
We returned to Lesbury where we completed a cool down before a group drove to Alnmouth to visit one of our favourite tearooms, the Village Tearoom.
We hope you enjoyed the walk and look forward to seeing you again soon.
