This is a linear walk along the banks of the River Tees between Middleton-One-Row and Eaglescliffe that begins with a short train journey. The delightful walk follows the winding river downstream for two-thirds of the route with a little urban walking both at the start and at the end of the walk.

This interesting Tees Valley walk starts from Dinsdale Railway Station in Middleton-St-George with a level walk along a quiet residential road to reach the picturesque Middleton-One-Row, from where it descends gradually to intersect the River Tees. Pleasant riverside walking then follows through several open fields, passing under the flight path of Durham Tees Valley Airport. Shortly after, the route leaves the river for a 1.4 mile diversion through fields and lanes, eventually to re-intersect the river. The walk then tracks the meandering river through woods and open fields to just south of the village of Aislaby, where at times the path takes to duck-boards in order to pass through areas of subsidence. From Aislaby the route closely follows the River Tees all the way to Egglescliffe, located on the opposite bank of the river to Yarm. From Egglescliffe there follows flat riverside walking through open fields that leads to Eaglescliffe Golf Course, where the route leaves the river and heads up a lane alongside the golf course, then through a residential area to return to the car park at Eaglescliffe Railway Station. Except for the initial walk from Dinsdale Station to Middleton-One-Row the entire walk is along the route of the Teesdale Way long-distance footpath.

The walk was easy to follow, a couple of places were a little tricky due to changes in stiles & fields but having a handy map keeps you straight! The only other comment would be that a section of the walk, due to flooding and damaged duck boards is a tad tricky and super slippery, I fell twice but its still worth the walk- who'd have thought countryside this beautiful in an 'industrial' area!
