Description

Guidebook of walking routes in County Durham. The 40 day walks, ranging between 5 and 24km in length, explore all corners of this varied county, encompassing wild moorland, rolling pastures, riverbanks and the low cliff coast. With such a range of possibilities, there are walks here for all abilities. They take in highlights such as Beamish, Durham City, Tan Hill and High Force. Featuring 1:50K OS mapping, step-by-step route descriptions, as well as information on the history of the region, the guidebook details everything you need to walk in the region. The county lies between two mighty rivers - the Tyne and the Tees - and between the high Pennines in the west and the North Sea to the east. Into this small space is crammed a wide variety of landscape and two centuries of turbulent history, waiting to be explored on foot.
