Walking in Weardale Book 2

Walking in Weardale Book 2

Weardale, the valley of the Prince Bishops. Following the success of his previous two books, ‘Walks from Stanhope’ and ‘Walking in Weardale’, the author continues his exploration of this beautiful but rugged little dale.

One of the former ‘lead dales’ of the North Pennines and also one of the birth places of the North East’s iron and steel industry, this is an area that is rich in industrial history With these industries now gone, Weardale is rapidly gaining a reputation for its natural beauty and becoming a magnet for discerning walkers.

Join the author in another series of nine walks as he explores the countryside of this dale, from the lower grazing pastures surrounding Wolsingham up to the high, windswept moors of the Pennine watershed and discover what makes this valley so special.
