Important: In the event of bad weather walks may be cancelled, changed or rescheduled for later in the same week so consult the weardale.uk website from 8am on the morning of the walk. (We are often able to update the website to say if the walk is going ahead the evening before).
Walk Route: From Frosterley Station car park we walk through the village along the northside of the river Wear and use the footbridge to cross the Wear to Broadwood Quarry. After crossing the quarry we walk along the south bank of the river to the caravan site near Landieu Farm. A short steep climb to the south across farmland brings us to East and West Biggins Farm. Following the Weardale Way SW towards Harehope we then turn north towards wise Eel Bridge and return to the station car park.
