Additional Information

Local Information. Both 6 and 8 are available to purchase independently.
The history and heritage of Weardale has been shaped not only by nature but also by the hand of man. Clothed once more in its rural cloak, Weardale was once at the centre of the world's lead mining industry and prior to that was the hunting ground of the all-powerful Prince Bishops of Durham. In the past, iron ore, limestone and coal were all hewn from the earth but richest of all were Weardale's massive deposits of lead. The upland scenery is quite breathtaking, rising to over 2000 feet. Hardy sheep graze these remote moorlands which are pierced by the headwaters of the River Wear. As the river bisects the Dale, the scenery softens and one travels through attractive stone-built hamlets and market towns such as St Johns Chapel and Stanhope only a short drive away.

Directions DL13 1BJ
