Felton - Morwick Circular

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

Leaving the village of Felton, we follow the path along the riverbanks of the Coquet, famed for its salmon fishing, then onto an old cart-track known as Rake Lane to reach the farm hamlet of Morwick. Here we can sample the delicious ice cream now made here on the farm, along with a cuppa as required. From Morwick we follow the farm lane, crossing the railway and back to the riverbanks where we pass through an area used for pheasant rearing. Crossing further fields and walking through woodland, we then retrace our steps to Felton, where a good meal can be had in the local pub.

Please note: This walk returns via a clearly marked and well constructed pedestrian railway crossing. Nevertheless please take care to cross safely.

Did this walk on lovely sunny day on the 5th.October 2020. Rated 2 because of the problems we had. At point 7,the field had crops which were 6ft high. the path had been diverted to the right round the field...But it was a jungle, thistles..nettles..brambles very very difficult to walk. what should have taken 5 minutes took 15 minutes of hard work. Point 8 you do need to be extremely careful the trains pass nearly every 5 minutes at 100per hour.As you go over the stile into the field this was again full of crops. And again at point 11 there were crops. not a good walk.

This is a lovely walk which we did 4/8/2016 but there is a change at points 10/11. When you reach the 'Next corner' mentioned at 10 ignore the gate and turn left following the main track for about 20 yards, you will see a fingerpost pointing diagonally left across the field, this will lead to the woods (North Park Wood) the map is a little misleading as it would seem that the path is a third of the way into the wood, in fact it follows the northern edge of the wood. When the wood ends there is an open area, ignore the path to the left and continue on the path ahead to the gate mentioned in 11. This will put you in the field where you turn left and along the fieldside.

Completed this walk over Spring Bank Holiday. Sadly the Northumberland Arms is now closed. However, there is an excellent bakers and cafe on the other side of the bridge in Felton.

The distance estimation for this walk is incorrect. We took this walk thinking it would be an easy seven and a half miles. Turned out that from point one to point 12 is actually 8.5 miles and to do it as a full circular (returning to start point) it's actually more like 10 miles.
