Navigating the Weardale Way

On Sunday, 11th December, Roger Blacklock led an enthusiastic team of nine SRC A-Walkers along the section of the Weardale Way that runs between Bishop Auckland and Durham City.

As we made our way along the banks of the River Wear, we sited no fewer than six herons - fine-looking birds they were too!

Just after crossing the road at Page Bank Bridge, we found a very pleasant lunch location overlooking the river's edge - sitting on the trunk of a fallen tree. Unfortunately, disaster soon struck when the old tree-trunk upon which we were sitting suddenly collapsed - causing considerable damage to Maggie's walking pole! Fortunately, nobody was injured and after a very pleasant lunch we were able to continue our trek to Durham - taking a short tea-stop in Shincliffe Wood.

Thanks for a great day Roger.

Many thanks to Jane Thompson for taking the photographs.
