A delightful walk, partly along the River Tees and other smaller streams and rivers, partly along a section of now dismantled railway and partly through farm and woodland.

The first section is through mixed broadleaved woodland, following the course of the river. The path keeps to one bank and gradually climbs away from the river to the buttress of the demolished railway bridge (one of the casualties of the infamous Beeching Report of the 60s). The final section of woodland is conifer, again by a stream, so the walk has an interesting mixture of environments.

Lartington Hall, on the route of the walk, has fascinating medieval field systems which are now being protected under the Countryside Stewardship Scheme.

A lot of storm damage trees down blocking parts of this path also the right turn at waypoints 6 is virtually invisible and due to a lot of work required I would say give it a miss unless you have done it recently

Along with a team of voluntary countryside rangers from Durham County, we improved the footpath in the woods between points 10 and 11 about a year ago - before it was very wet and muddy. Glad to see this path being recommended. Roger Cornwell
