Overview

This popular guidebook to walking and cycling in County Durham, in the north east of England, describes 450 miles of walking routes and cycleways. There are 40 day-walks, ranging between 5 and 24km in length, as well as 10 cycle paths along old railway lines.
County Durham - the Land of the Prince-Bishops - lies between two mighty rivers - the Tyne to the north and the Tees to the south, stretching from the high Pennines in the west to the cliffs of the east coast. The routes explore all corners of this varied and historic landscape - wild moorlands, gentle countryside, riverside walks, nature reserves, heritage sites, railway paths and the low cliff coast, passing Roman forts, ancient churches and castles. And, on the high Pennines, vast tracts of wild moorland are now 'open access'. The guide is illustrated with OS mapping and colour photographs and packed with local information on the wildlife, geology, history and industrial heritage of the county.
