19th May 2019
Carey Burn Bridge - Harthope Valley, NE71 6RE

Our walk begins at the Carey Burn bridge in the stunning Harthope Valley.

Following the Harthope Burn, we walk further into the valley until, at Langley, our route ascends and traverses Brands Hill. We then enjoy the fabulous views of this remote area before dropping down to Old Middleton, the site of a deserted village, and returning along the quaintly named Happy Valley to the Carey Burn bridge.
