The official launch of the Heritage Way took place on Thursday, 31st May on a day of glorious sunshine. Groups of walkers converged at Causey Arch and were entertained by two excellent folk singers while waiting for a steam train from Tanfield Railway to bring John Grundy and all invited guests to the opening. John spoke in his usual informative and entertaining style before cutting a ribbon and declaring the route open.
The route is being walked and enjoyed by an encouraging number of people. As yet, there is no book covering the Heritage Way but all maps and walk instructions are available for download from the website.
Cyclists have enquired about the doing the Heritage Way but it is a route planned for walkers and, although parts of some sections can be used by cyclists, it would be advisable to consult cycling maps to check which parts of the route would be usable..
