Footsteps in Northumberland, is a guided walks company based in Northumberland. We specialise in taking groups and individuals out and about in this remarkable county, one thing you won't see is very many people, in fact we are often surprised if we do.
We are located in the north east corner of England as close to the English/Scottish border as it's possible to get. Our walks programme explores the Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Northumberland National Park and its Cheviot Hills and the countryside between the two. Northumberland like many parts of the UK, has something to offer every day of the year, so we provide a guided walk every day of the year.
I hold the Hill and Moorland Leader Award and I am working towards my Mountain Leader (Summer) Award. I have many years of experience leading guided walks in different areas of England and Wales. In addition, I am also a leader for HF Holidays in the UK. I am available as a freelance guide and I lead walking holidays along Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail for Shepherd's Walks. I have led holidays for Country Walks in Northumberland and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. In 2018 I will be leading for Just You Holidays in Northumberland. Finally, I have led walks for Berghaus as part of their annual International Sales Conferences.
You can find out about who we are and what we do by visiting our website and we look forward to hearing from you.

We established our own guided walks business in Northumberland in 2011. We are Footsteps in Northumberland and it is fair to say that the Hill and Moorland Leader (HML) Award underpins our day to day activities as we lead guided walks here in Northumberland and in other parts of the UK too. The Award has given confidence to people who employ me and the freelance work I do on a business to business basis, has certainly increased since we began in 2011. In addition, I deliver the Mountain Training Hill Skills courses, again without the HML Award, it would have been a business opportunity closed to us. So my recommendation is, get a Mountain Training Award, it is a passport to new places and business. As I look ahead now to perhaps gaining the Mountain Leader (Summer) Award and knowing that if I can follow the same path, this too will support and be a key part of the business that we have worked hard to establish.
