Whitworth Hall Country Park - Byers Green and Back

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk. Join or log in above if you are already a member. Access is available to Walkingworld subscribers or you can buy the walk individually for £1.95 once you are logged in.

This is a lovely walk regardless of the weather. You can spend some time at the beginning or end of the walk in a beautiful deer-park and the old walled garden behind Shafto's Public House. At the beginning of the walk an accessible path has been constructed, so a short walk can be carried out by wheelchair users, returning along Whitworth Road from the point where this walk joins the Auckland Way. The Auckland Way railway path, of which you cover a short section, is a walk in its own right. With its links to Bonnie Bobby Shafto, this is a walk for all ages.

No problems on this walk for our two small dogs as easily hoisted over any stiles. Shafto pub closed at this time but we take everything we need anyway.

Lovely little walk and the food in the Bobby Shafto pub is excellent.
