Those who like to go walking
in the far north of England may wish to consider a route publicised heavily by a John Muir Trust volunteer over the past 11 years.
Roger Morris has been promoting the 36-mile Isaac's Tea Trail route in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as a good route for John Muir Award activities, which involve getting urban youngsters out into the countryside.
And the trust notes his work has been rewarded through the inclusion of the path in the book 501 Must-Visit Wild Places.
Describing the variety of the scenery from tree-filled valleys and bare moorland, Mr Morris noted: "When I led a John Muir Award group on a three day expedition along Isaac's Tea Trail the young people saw the dramatic changes in the countryside over short distances."
The trail is named after 19th century tea seller and philanthropist Isaac Holden, who supplied tea to miners and others in the remote area, close to Hadrian's Wall.
Walkers visiting the North Pennines AONB may enjoy the Spring walking festival
at Haltwhistle starting on April 30th next month, which continues until May 8th.
