This walk takes us along the back road to Brotherlee, to Salters Gill and a short ascent. A steady uphill path west, leads us to Snape Gate and on to Snowhope Close. Turning north, we meet the track to Horsley Head and travel adjacent to Horsley Burn, back to the road and the return to Stanhope.
David Towndrow and myself recced part of this walk, with a return on the Eastgate/Stanhope Weardale Way. That’s very overgrown in parts and not for this time of year. The tarmac is better.

There is a possibility of a short return.
