Hudeshope from Middleton Geotrail

Hudeshope from Middleton Geotrail – coming soon!

This Geotrail will be available soon.

This 8km (5 mile) circular route takes you from the village of Middleton-in-Teesdale to explore the rich geological and mining heritage of the lovely Hudeshope valley. The route crosses a number of mineral veins that were once worked commercially, and the remnants of mining operations, including old shafts and entrances, can be seen in several places.

This trail uses public footpaths and minor roads, although some of the route crosses fields where paths are not always obvious. It includes stiles and some steep uphill and downhill sections. Strong boots, warm clothing and good waterproofs are advised. If you are walking this route between April and July, please be aware of ground nesting birds and always stick to footpaths. Do not attempt to enter any of the disused mine workings.

Start location: Middleton-in-Teesdale, County Durham DL12 0QG (NY 947 254)
