Walks in the Derwent Valley

Walks in the Derwent Valley

by: Tim Deveaux
The Derwent Valley in the north east of England is not known very well outside God's country. It is a most beautiful valley and should be designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. This book describes eleven walks intended to show how stunning many parts of the valley are. From the former industrial area near the confluence with the Tyne, the exceptional Gibside estate, a gorgeous gorge and the wild open spaces of the Nookton and Beldon burns near the source, there is a walk for all.

Some walks were tested on people who have lived in the valley most of their lives but they were surprised and astounded at some of the features of this dramatic valley. Each walk entry begins with details of distance, time, difficulty and parking information. The comprehensive route finding instructions are accompanied by a sketch map with the route clearly outlined in red. Information is provided on cafes and pubs along the route and there are comprehensive background notes about all the places of interest visited. Colour photographs are also included.
