GPS Cycle and Walking Routes

Lanchester Valley Walk

12 miles (19 km)

This shared cycling and walking path uses the route of the railway originally built to carry iron ore to Consett Steelworks. The path runs from Durham to Consett passing Bearpark, Langley Park and Lanchester. Route highlights include the 13th century Beaurepaire Priory at Bearpark, Lanchester Roman Fort and some lovely views of the River Browney.
The Brandon - Bishop Auckland Walk and the Deerness Valley Way run close to the trail. They also run along disused railway lines and are a great way to further explore the area.
