Walltown Country Park
Walltown Quarry, Greenhead, Cumbria, CA8 7HF
Northumberland National Park is an amazing place to walk. Our popular ‘Introduction to Navigation’ training courses have helped people to develop the basic skills and confidence to go out and explore more on foot!
The need to navigate in poor visibility might, however, occur when you least expect it – or perhaps you are planning to explore Northumberland’s Dark Sky Park on a night-time walk.
