Wear/Tees watershed Walk – Weardale Tuesday Walks – this walk is going ahead as planned
Wear/Tees Watershed 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.
Walk Route: We walk on the Tees side of the watershed, with steadily increasing views, to the mysterious conical hill, Pawlaw Pike. Passing some large mining reservoirs with potentially lots of birdlife we return with long views down into Weardale.
