NOTE: Part of the coastal path is closed due to erosion. A circular coastal walk from Marsden in Tyne and Wear. The route heads inland through the rolling farmland and meadows before returning along a stretch of the dramatic coast. There is plenty of interest along the way with old windmills, the iconic Cleadon Water Tower, the impressive coastal sea stacks and lovely views throughout, which stretch for miles around. The walk has several long but gentle climbs and descents. The paths are generally firm but can be muddy in winter and some parts can be a little overgrown in the summer so long trousers are recommended. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus seven stiles (low stone stiles and low wooden stiles with large open gaps alongside that should be easy for most dogs to pass through or climb over). The fields along the route were all crop fields (not holding any livestock) at the time of writing. The route crosses a golf course so take particular care here to avoid any flying stray golf balls. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

The coastal path from the caravan site to Souter is closed. There is a path on the other side of the road that you can access directly at the end of the bridleway. The path takes you to Souter.
