    First to Review

    I was bored last Bank Holiday Monday, so I packed a small Picnic, some water, a fleece and a waterproof coat, and left my house in Fenham. I walked down Condercum Road and kept going. I hit Scotswood Road around the point where the Hadrian's Way joins the old rail route west, so I followed the signs. The route is well laid out and will take you as far as Wylam if you fancy, where you can cross the river and walk back to town. I crossed at Newburn Bridge, and was joined by some friends for a return along the South side of the Tyne and the Keelmans Way. The North Side is definitely prettier, but it is a good hearty walk, pretty well signposted and paved. There were a couple of points where we had to leave the edge of the river and go inland a little ( do not be tempted to go through any new housing estates as they were blocked) but we were soon back on track. All in all I did about 10 miles, with the others doing about 6. We crossed back into Newcastle at the Swing bridge, then it was a pint and a burger in Lloyds bar as the heavens opened. Marvellous!
