Brignall Banks - Brignall Mill - Greta Bridge - Brignall

Brignall Banks was immortalised by Sir Walter Scott when he wrote the words:
'O Brignall Banks are wild and fair
And Greta's woods are green
And you may gather garlands there,
Would grace a summer queen'.
This is an excellent walk for those interested in flora and fauna. It affords ample opportunities to observe woodland flowers, birds, small mammals and if lucky, deer. The walk is from the tiny hamlet of Brignall on the Durham and Yorkshire county borders. It is chiefly through a wooded glen alongside the River Greta to Brignall Mill. The route back is along the opposite side of the glen and out across pastureland, before joining a minor road to Greta Bridge and the field-path back to Brignall.
