Learn all about the geology and lead mining history of the beautiful Slitt Wood in Weardale with this 20-page colour walk guidebook.
The walk starts and finishes in Westgate and follows a riverside route through woodlands and out on to moorland lanes with outstanding views. The guidebook will help walkers discover the area’s rich lead and ironstone mining heritage, and some of the local plants and birdlife too.
