An interesting little walk with a railway theme that explores the fields and lanes in the rolling countryside in this southern part of County Durham. The walk starts and ends at the former historically important railway town of Shildon, considered by many to be the 'Cradle of the Railways'.

From the 'Locomotion' car park the route passes through part of the railway museum complex on a perfectly flat walk before taking to fields, lanes and a little road-walking as the route arrives at the village of Redworth. A steady rise through fields takes the walker to the highest point of the walk west of Redworth before descending on a quiet rural road. Field-walking then follows with a short rise before the walk starts the gentle descent through fields and along a historic railway path to return to Shildon.
