Marg reports :-

13 of us were joined by 8 Ramblers for this joint walk

We left Rookhope heading South along the Weardale Way / A Pennine Journey routes with views over to Reahope Moor

We left The Weardale Way at Crows Clough to continue on A Pennine Journey passing Heights Quarry then over the fields to Westgate

From Westgate we took the path north through the wood alongside Middlehope Burn with its many waterfalls stopping for lunch on the way.

Leaving the wood we continued by the burn passing the disused mine workings

We left the burn climbing up the track at Whitley Hills up to the road then along to Lintzgarth and the path back to Rookhope

We finished off with a drink in The Rookhope Inn a stopping place for the C2C cyclists
