Morpeth to Bothel Walk
Sun has finally come out.
Walk starts at Melton Constable Pub and goes along Hollywell Dene until you reach the old wagon-way viaduct. Continue north along the wagon-way until Hollywell Pond then cross to a parallel track slightly to the east and continue towards Seaton Delaval Hall. On reaching the A190 (The Avenue) you can turn right and head straight down into Seaton Sluice for a shorter walk of about 4 miles or turn left for the longer walk. The longer walk (6ish miles) continues north at the road to New Hartley then continues along a bridalway past Seaton Red House farm and then turns off to the coast eastwards at Lysdon Farm. The tide should be out so we can walk back to the pub along the beach or alternatively there is a path through the dunes. Map: Open Street Map
