Whilst this walk is perhaps best appreciated in the spring and summer, you will see from the photographs that it is a pleasant walk, even in the winter. Cassop Vale is one of the most diverse wildlife sites and many hours can be spent appreciating the different aspects. A pleasant walk with excellent views to Durham Cathedral and over central and west Durham uses old wagonways from local quarries and collieries, returning through the small village of Old Quarrington with its many renovated farm buildings. There are views over the local nature reserve, Crowtrees, in which constant work has been ongoing since 2004. This is a walk which can be shortened or extended.

We did this walk on Sunday 8th May 2011. Here are a few comments/corrections to the instructions. WP 3 - The information board shown in the picture has been removed BUT the seat is still there. WP 5 - The distance quoted of 200M is more like 550M and it would be useful to say "down the hill". WP 9 - Distance quoted is 150M - should be about 550M. WP 11 - For 100M read 300M and for 250M it is about 350M. WP 17 - For 100M read 400M. I have calculated my amended distances using both Google Earth and Memory-Map with 1:25000 maps.
