Morpeth Footpaths Society is a social group of walkers from the town of Morpeth and further afield who meet throughout the year for a regular walking programme, exploring and enjoying the fantastic countryside of Northumberland and at times its surrounding counties.


How to join: If you would like to join us on a walk to experience what it is all about, choose from one of the many walks you would like to accompany us on.


During the walk, you will be introduced to other walkers and one of our committee members will be able to answer any questions you may have.  As a guest member, a nominal sum of £1 is required to ensure you are covered by our walking insurance.  Any guest who fails to pay, is not covered.


A maximum of 2 walks can be taken as a guest and full membership would be expected thereafter.
