Prayer Walks around the Diocese – Souter Circular

Kathryn Turner writes:

The Walk starts at the Souter Lighthouse and takes you along the coast, up through countryside following parts of ‘Bede’s Way’ with panoramic views across Gateshead and towards Newcastle (on a clear day!) and back along the beautiful Marsden Bay. A moderate walk with some stiles and climbs.

Allow two hours or more to allow for pause and reflection time.
