Prayer Walks around the Diocese - Simonside

Kathryn Turner writes:

"The Walk takes you through woodland with options to scramble up Simonside and/ or extend the walk to see Neolithic carvings near Lordenshaw.  It is a fairly strenuous walk on paths and grassland with a couple of steep climbs.

Allow 3+ hours for the “full” walk or even longer to allow pause-and-reflection time.
The closest village is Great Tosson near Rothbury.
