*Henshaws Hikers

'Improve your fitness, get some fresh air, enjoy some beautiful scenery and make new friends! Our walking group are aged between 20 and 90 years old and you don’t need to have lots of experience with walking. The walks are a full day with a  break for lunch so you do need to be able to walk approximately 6-7 miles.'

*Newcastle & District CHA HF Rambling Club

'This is one of the oldest Rambling Clubs in the country, with a continuous history since 1902. Originally we were a local group of two organisations: CHA - once the "Co-operative Holidays Association" - now Countrywide Holidays taken over by Ramblers Holidays; HF - once “Holidays Fellowship” - now HF Holidays. Ramblers Holidays and HF Holidays still provide walking holidays or special interest holidays in Great Britain and abroad. '
