Walking in Teesdale

Walking in Teesdale

by: Keven Shevels
The River Tees, one of the major rivers of the north and in its upper reaches, in Teesdale, a haven for walkers. Here the main valley of the river and the side valleys of its tributaries spread across a wide area that encompasses riverside meadows, wooded valleys, high moorland and the tall hills of the high Pennines. In short this is magnificent walking country with footpaths and terrain to suit all types of walker from those expecting a gentle riverside stroll to the long distance hill walker.

Teesdale is a stunningly beautiful valley and with its unique and comprehensive blend of landscape, land-forms, history and heritage is a fascinating, hidden corner of England. Join the author as he travels through the secret wooded valleys and across the high hills to discover the wonders of this stirring countryside and explores both the history and the culture of its people.

Each walk chapter begins with a short description of the route plus practical data including distance, ascent, terrain, time, start point with grid reference, OS Explorer map sheet number and suitability for dogs. The route descriptions are clear and comprehensive with grid references given for major navigation points. Each walk has also been assigned a Ferguson Grading System rating and the book gives details of this system and how to interpret the grades. The book includes an informative introduction to the area and is illustrated with colour photographs. The coloured sketch maps that accompany the navigation text give only an outline of the route. We would recommend carrying the relevant OS Explorer map and a compass on these walks.
