Feldon and Eudon Burn Walk – Weardale Tuesday Walks
Feldon and Eudon Burn Walk
Important: In the event of bad weather walks may be changed, cancelled or rescheduled for later in the same week so consult the www.weardale.uk website from 8am on the morning of the walk, before travelling.
Start: Meet at the Punch Bowl pub DH8 9NL for a short drive to the start of the walk.
Walk Route: This is a challenging but beautiful walk which first follows the narrow valley of the Feldon Burn past two lesser waterfalls to Feldon Linn. (“Linn” is a local word for waterfall like “Force” which is common in Cumbria. Only the finest waterfall in any watercourse is given the honour of the “Linn” title). We then use a shooting track to cross over to the Eudon Beck for the return. The narrow sloping path through the Feldon valley requires you to be sure footed. We cross the Eudon Burn twice on fords near the end of the walk so you might want to bring crocs or wellies just in case. There are a couple of short grassy scrambles. Walking poles or a stick would be really useful. Possible short return along the B6278.
