START / FINISH       ROADSIDE PARKING AT WOODS

Whenever I donít have much time for a decent walk or I somehow manage to finish my jobs at home early I always try to get out for a walk someplace , when time is a big issue I normally head to Thrunton woods , mainly because its only twenty odd minutesí drive away and for a small amount of effort the views can be quite rewarding , it also has the added advantage that if itís very windy the trees will act as a wind break which makes life a lot better for me , now the strange thing about these woods is that I have been coming here for years and have walked every track , footpath ,deer trail but I still seem to find new bits to mooch around.

The down side is that it is very popular with other walkers and the dog walking brigade but once you get into the woods it is very easy to get off the beaten track and lose them all, like wise it has two really good craggy (I would say ridge paths) paths that give excellent views to the distant cheviot hills, any way todays walk was just a wander no set route or plan just a chill out day in the fresh air, as normal a few photos.
