Nice walk nearest Sunderland

Want to make the most of a nice Autumnal day tomorrow and go for a walk with the boy and the dog. Any suggestions around the sunderland area / 10 mile radius? Prefer to give the coast a miss and prefer a circular walk.

There’s some good walking in the woods which surround Beamish. Far more scenic than you’d imagine.

Round penshaw , behind the monument along the riverside
Did that before but thought it was a bit risky (maybe river was particularly high?)
Penshaw woods is nice enough though

You can download leaflets on there and they point of places of interest to have a look at on the way.

If you want to go a bit further away, Gibside has lovely walks plus a play area and stuff for the bairn. Northumberlandia near Cramlington is canny too. I've had my photo taken standing on her nipple :lol:
Aye, done that one before. Boob hill was a highlight for me too :lol:

Start at Fatfield and walk along to Cox green. Or start at Washington wild fowl and walk in same direction, just other side of river.

Recommended start point?
Noses point. Down onto the blast beach, pass the cats eyes to the pillbox, and up frenchies walk. Over the stop look listen crossing then head south to the path. Head west till you reach hawthorn village and the pub, beer or two. Go back the north path through the woods, or the old quarry, then back to noses along the cliff path.

This is a nice walk then skip over the railway lines and down to the most secluded beach ever.
The first time I Did that walk was before the internet had images and reviews of everything, so walking into th beach was a real wow moment considering how local it is.

Depends upon the age of your lad but Geocaching is great when they’re under 10.

Dinnar if you can still get free stuff whe you download the app.

Which one is “pirates cove”?

I knar Jackies Beach, Marsden Beach and Frenchman’s Bay but another name along the route would be good.

It’s not circular but you could get the E1 from Shields fair back to Latimers. Mileage covered if you followed the cliff top path would be about 8 miles.
 

Nero the dog

After the weather this week, all of the walks inland are mud pits. I know from trying to find somewhere that the dog doesn’t come back looking like the creature from the black lagoon.
