2021_09_08 Barnard Castle Circular

Leader : Marg          Distance : 5.8 miles

8 of us left Barnard Castle, crossed over the Tees at Silver Bridge taking The Teesdale Way to Pecknell Wood where we took the path to Pecknell Farm. By now it was getting really warm so we managed to find a bit of shade for our coffee stop.

The path then took us through Grotto Wood where shortly after we took the path north first passing through the archway beneath the dismantled railway then crossing over The Tees Railway Path. Shortly after we decided to have another much needed drinks stop.

Now refreshed we made our way to Cooper House and picked up The Teesdale Way path stopping for lunch in a nice shady area above Jack Scare pool. We followed the path back to Barnard Castle crossing back over Silver Bridge stopping of at The Commercial Hotel for our after walk drink
