Walking in Weardale: Walking North East: County Durham
This product is not available

A full-colour booklet describing nine walks and the history and landscape surrounding those walks, through the length of the Weardale valley.

Weardale, the valley of the Prince Bishops, given shortly after the Norman Conquest to the Bishops of Durham to rule as their own, this rugged dale has a long and turbulent history.

Join the author in a series of nine walks as he explores the countryside of this dale from the lower grazing pastures surrounding Wolsingham up to the high, windswept moors of the Pennine watershed. Once heavily exploited for it's mineral wealth, this now quite and tranquil dale is a haven for the walker seeking to broaden their horizons and sample what the Bishops once ruled with a rod of iron.
