Bishop Auckland, in County Durham, is a market town with Auckland Castle at its centre. The castle is home to the Bishop of Durham and is an impressive building to visit. This is a remarkably pleasant circular walk starting in Etherley Dene (on the western edge of Bishop Auckland). The walk provides superb views down the river towards Bishop Auckland.

As elsewhere on the River Wear, the riverside path is wonderful to follow. Escomb, although only a small village, has a Saxon church at its centre, which is worth a visit should you have time.

Did this walk in the sunshine yesterday. It was lovely, many thanks. I look forward to returning when the leaves are changing colour.
