Saturday 6th July – Thursday 11th July

The bicycle ride will take us from Ingram to Rothbury and onwards to the motte and bailey at Elsdon and the ruins of Thirlwall Castle in Greenhead. For this leg of Tales of the Forgotten North we are working in partnership with Sustrans. A variety of Sustrans participants, including school groups from across Tyne and Wear will join us on our adventure.
