Marg reports :-

7 of us were joined by an old friend John Leroi

We set off along the old railway line which ran between Durham and Consett

After a little while we left it for a short climb up to Newbiggin

We contained south over the fields down to the River Browney where we had our lunch stop on the bridge

Crossing the river we made our way along the track then onto the road back into Lanchester

A quick divert took us up to the site of the Longovicium Roman Fort

Our after walk drink was in The King’s Head

(Don’t know why I put quick divert it was anything but!!!)
