walk notes

A 10 mile walk around Herrington Country Park and Penshaw Monument.

Herrington Country Park is the redevelopment of a coalfield site and is under the 70-foot high folly, Penshaw Monument.

This walk will take us around the Country Park which houses a lake, skateboard park and many statues.  We will also be walking part of the Weardale Way which runs alongside the River Wear, taking in an old railway line before making our way up the hill which houses Penshaw Monument.

This is a great walk with beautiful scenery and of course the customary tea shop at Penshaw Nursery and Tea Room.
