Areas of local interest:
Weetwood Moor cup and ring marks: a great place to begin an exploration of the many remains left by our ancient ancestors to keep us guessing about their daily activities and unknown rituals. This can be followed by a walk up one of the many hill forts in North Northumberland such as close by Yeavering Bell, home of the famous feral goats.
Henhole: a short walk from the bunkhouse this is a great glacial hanging valley of waterfalls cutting through the Cheviot granite.
The north east coast is nearby for a possible visit during the weekend or you could explore further there after the course ends on the Monday .
Monday: after breakfast depart the venue…..you can of course then head straight home or spend the day exploring Northumberland further.
