Rally Point Notes:

Two days touring th Hadrian's Wall Area of Northumbria, this is will be a mixture of backroads, byways on a Tour of Keilder Forest, Otterburn Ranges and Cheviot Hills on Sat and a relaxed day on the Sunday which will take us to the Northumbria Coast for more of a cruise down the coast. Finishing on the A1 North of Newcastle.

The Initial campsite will be in the the area of Haydon Bridge on a Basic Camping Farm and then on the Sat night is a another camping field where we will be hosting a BBQ cook off with locally sourced meat and produce for the evening. Both sites are Dark Sky sites so they are a designed or star gazing, so bring the telescope.

We are still working on the full time plan as the live firing times for Otterburn Ranges have changed again. Expected driving will be a full day on the Sat.

Suitable for all vehicles with or without 4x4 just need good ground clearance. I.E Freelander upwards or lifted Nissan Micra.

Groups will be in sets of 6 to keep things manageable.
