Ushaw Moor Community – Local Wildlife Nature

 

 

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.

From Broompark follow the Deerness Valley Walk sign. The track runs high above the river valley and passes through arable and grazing land. This area has had restricted access due to the railway and steep valley slopes and much of it has escaped intensive improvement. Consequently, a number of original landscape features and herb rich meadows remain.
