A walk along the lanes and through the fields of east County Durham. This pleasant low-level walk passes through a series of former mining villages and ends with a visit through a nature reserve on the reclaimed site of a former pit heap.

From the car park the route passes along a lane to the south of Cassop to intersect and travel along a railway path to the village of Thornley. The walk then heads south along a lane and road to arrive at Wheatley Hill. Field-walking then takes you through the tidy hamlet of Old Wingate and on to the village of Trimdon Station (Deaf Hill). A little road-walking then follows that passes through Trimdon Grange. From here road- and field-walking takes the walker past the hamlet of Town Kelloe and through the short, delightful, wooded valley to the north of the hamlet. The final leg of the route is on wide, stony tracks that take you through the Little Wood Nature Reserve, a wooded landscaped area that was formerly a mine spoil heap, for a return to Cassop.
