"Pennine Way Reopens in Wark Forest, Northumberland

"The diversion that has been in place [since June 2022] through the Wark Forest in Northumberland following Storm Arwen in 2021 has now been removed.

"At the end of 2021 Storm Arwen caused devastation to the Northumberland forests through which the Pennine Way passes, making the trail inaccessible. Forestry England have been working hard ever since to clear the affected areas and although there is some further work to be done, the diversion has been removed and the Trail is open once more. Please note however that further repair work and brash clearance will be necessary in order to bring the condition of the trail up to standard.”
