Local walking links

There is lots going on in and around Barnard Castle to encourage you to get out walking.

Every Tuesday morning a Walking for Health walk is run from Teesdale Leisure Centre. Walks are about an hour.

For toddlers and children there is Bright Woods Forest School – a community interest community using play and exploration in the outdoors to allow children to grow and learn.

Teesdale University of the Third Age (U3A) has three walking groups, aiming to please as many interests as possible. Choose from the Fell Walking Group, Goldilocks Walking Group and the Shorter Walks Group.

The Barnard Castle Ramblers Association also holds walks for different abilities in and around the area.

If you come across any issues on footpaths or bridleways please contact Durham County Council’s Rights of Way team through the online reporting system.
