About Footsteps

Patrick Norris, Footsteps guide

Hello, I am Patrick and I will be your guide on your Footsteps guided walk in Northumberland. I hold the Hill and Moorland Leader Award, a nationally recognised qualification and I have been leading guided walks since 2003.

Footsteps was established in 2011 and since then, we have led hundreds of guided walks and led thousands of people around Northumberland, exploring and discovering its many delights, its history, wildlife and sheer beauty across the 12-months of the year.

I am available as a freelance guide and I lead walking holidays for Shepherds Walks, Just You Holidays and HF Holidays. I have completed for example Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail eight times, walked St. Oswald's Way and St. Cuthbert's Way too. My knowledge of history, wildlife, wildflowers, farming and forestry is shared with you during the walk and whatever else comes up along the way.

I am a Northumberland Coast Ambassador for Northumberland.

I love walking and I love to lead guided walks in Northumberland. I look forward to meeting and walking with you on a Footsteps guided walk in 2019.
