A cycle by the Wansbeck in Morpeth

Took the balance bike for a spin along the river in Morpeth. The path by the Wansbeck from Carlisle Park to the Steppy Stones is nice and flat, great for cycling and scootering. There is a car park opposite the park in the town centre, just a few minutes walk from the playground where there are two separate play areas for younger and older children. There are also plenty of side streets around High Stanners, near the the Steppy Stones. If you cross over the river by the stones the path leads you up into the town centre where there are plenty of cafes. If you have a pushchair, there is a bridge a little further up that you can use to cross instead. The independent Appleby’s Bookshop has a great children’s section with an ideally placed cafe inside right next to it, handy if your little ones don’t want to keep still while you finish your cuppa.
