When the Covid emergency is over, you will be able once again to get involved and come to one of our local events.

The one featured above took place alongside Hadrian’s wall some years ago when we joined a group of walkers following a route from Cape Wrath to Brighton (called the Bryson Line), and raising funds for CPRE as they went.

Bill Bryson, the writer, was President of CPRE for some years, and in one of his books devised the route linking some of Britain’s finest scenery from north to south in roughly a straight line. The section through Northumberland follows the Pennine Way through spectacular landscapes.

Before Covid we were able to work with local volunteers in Throckley and Newbiggin cleaning up green spaces where litter had accumulated. This was part of the national CPRE initiative the ‘September Green Clean’ and was much appreciated. We hope to restart this as soon as we can. Meanwhile, you may read about other events below.
