Deerness Valley Railway Path – LDWA Long Distance Paths

Deerness Valley Railway Path

13 km / 8 miles

Durham

One of a series of walks, the Durham Railway Paths, using dismantled railways in the Durham area. This line was opened in 1858 and carried coal out of the valley for nearly a hundred years. Now it is a pleasant walk, which follows the River Deerness through a wooded and pastoral landscape. The track runs high above the River Deerness valley, crossing and recrossing the river, and passes by Ushaw Moor asnd Esh Winning to finally cross the river again near Waterhouses to head south to Crook.

Leaflets currently out of print however copies will be sent out from Durham Rangers. Please contact Maria Murphy 0191 383 4144 or by Email rangers@durham.gov.uk.

From Broompark follow the Deerness Valley Walk sign.
