Stepping Stone In Bedlington, Northumberland
A riverside walk along the River Blyth, accessed on either side by stepping stones.
There are lots of good walks in this area, and the trails heading South West along the river eventually lead to Plessey Woods Country Park.
The route along the River Blyth is a lovely walk & generally pretty quiet. If you're into bird watching there are a variety of birds that can be spotted on the way, including Dippers, Herons & Grey Wagtails.
We started our walk from Cramlington to get to Humford Woods, and along the way is Horton Dene, which is very peaceful and a bit of a hidden gem.

I love the great outdoors and have been a National Trust & English Heritage member for years. I also love going off the beaten track and finding places like Sharp's Folly or Rothley Castle which are hidden gems in Northumberland. My favourite recent hike was climbing Red Screes in the Lake District on a whim, not fully grasping how high 776m was. It was still an achievement to conquer a Wainwright walk and I hope to do more one day.
