From Eggleston Village there is a long, stiff climb through fields then surfaced and unsurfaced lanes that leads onto the open Eggleston Moor. The long walk across the open moor is fairly flat on good clear tracks and provides great views of the surrounding hills. The walk eventually leaves the moor past The Ark on the Edge animal welfare sanctuary. A long section of pleasant moorland road-walking with generous grassy verges then follows before the route descends through several fields and along grassy lanes to intersect the Teesdale Way long-distance footpath that leads down to the River Tees. The short final section of the walk rises from Eggleston Bridge through the grounds of the charming Egglestone Hall and Gardens to return to the start.

Completed this excellent walk on 30/01/2019 on a crisp winters day with a good covering of snow. Very good views throughout and generally good clear tracks and footpaths to follow. A couple of navigation issues to note: WM2 part of the field containing the footpath has now been fenced into a paddock however there is a small stile over the fence which allows you to them follow the wall to the style at the top of the field. WM8 the gate described as being on the right just past Holdsworth farm buildings was not obvious and the several gates in the farm yard were securely fastened. There is however a gate on the right immediately before the buildings which allows access into the field and onto the footpath. WM13 the gate onto the B6278 is securely fastened and needed to be climbed over. All of the above are fairly minor and don't detract from a most enjoyable walk.
