Deerness Valley Railway Path – Conservation Event

People living in the Deerness Valley are being urged to get involved in looking after their local environment by taking part in a community conservation event.

Durham County Council’s Countryside Service is organising the event next Saturday (Feb 25) which is aimed at improving the Deerness Valley Way railway path.

The event will involve clearing unwanted small trees, bushes and gorse from sections of the route in order to improve the area for wildlife and prevent it from overhanging the path. Litter found along the route will also be removed.

The event on Saturday 25 February will take place on the Deerness Valley Railway Path, at Waterhouses.

It will be a drop-in session between 10am and 12 noon, so people can stay for as long or as little as they like. All tools will be provided, and children under 16 must be supervised.

People can either walk or cycle along the path or, if they are travelling by car, park at the Black Horse public house on Hamilton Row, Waterhouses.
