Please bring a drink and food.

The route starts at National Trust Crook Hall and follows the River Wear over the Millennium Bridge and through Fowler’s Yard (there are steep steps)up to Silver Street. Continues along the River Wear to Maiden Castle and then up to Old Durham Gardens (free entry, donations only). Return route on the other side of the River Wear, through Millennium Place (steps) and back to National Trust Crook Hall.
