Leader : Jan Distance 6.3 miles
There were 8 of us meandering with the River Wear from Bishop Auckland today. The route was slightly revised as a caution against getting too near the river which was high. Starting from The Batts we headed over the old Newton cap bridge then followed the Weardale Way east to the footbridge across the river which led to Newfield then returning past the Binchester Roman Fort.
A leisurely walk in good company some of whom visited the Vintage tea rooms in Bishop Auckland
