The Derwent Walk offers much scope for both short and longer walks. The main track follows the route of the Derwent Valley Railway which closed in 1962. The rail carried passengers and freight - noteably iron ore to Consett. There are well-signposted alternatives near to the visitor centres and there is scope for further walking beyond Rowland's Gill and on to Consett on less maintained routes. This route follows the line of the railway but encompasses one or two diversions along the way, which you can include as you wish or keep to the main path.
