Langley Park - Esh - Brandon - Alum Waters - Broompark - Langley Park

The walk starts from the lowly village of Langley Park in the valley of the River Browney, from where a little field-walking takes you up onto a ridge to the rather higher Esh Village with its famous cross linked to St Cuthbert. The walk then descends off the ridge to cross the Deerness Valley Railway Walk and then the River Deerness. A stiff climb out of the valley through a pleasant wood to intersect a stony track then follows. The long field track ends on the outskirts of New Brancepeth before a mix of field- and lane-walking delivers the walker to the lofty village of Brandon. Field- and road-walking then returns the walker to the floor of the Deerness Valley before a short, stiff climb once again re-intersects with the Deerness Valley Railway Path. A brief sortie through the outskirts of Broompark followed by a little lane- and field-walking then follows, passing through a large group of fishing lakes before intersecting the Lanchester Valley Railway Path for a long, pleasant walk back to Langley Park.
