Spennymoor and Byers Green

This walk begins in the heart of Jubilee Park, a beautiful, well maintained space, with a well designed tribute to those who lost their lives in the mines of Spennymoor and surrounding areas. After leaving the park the route has a short urban stretch before picking up the Auckland Way Railway Path which leads you away from the Town centre into idyllic countryside. From Auckland Way the route turns right to follow a public footpath through open countryside. Please note you need to pass through a field containing goats. The public footpath follows alongside Hagg Beck before emerging on to Haggs Lane in the Village of Byers Green. As you walk down the lane, framed by the cottages you will see the Cenotaph at the end of the road with a glorious view in the backdrop. The route then passes through Byers Green village before following open grasslands with panoramic views as far as the eye can see. Looping back around to pass the Whitworth Estate and Deer Park, turning left at Whitworth Hall, the former residence of the Shafto family, following the route back to Jubilee Park, where you can spend the rest of your day exploring the sensory gardens or having fun with younger ones on the play areas.
