Overview

A 5 mile walk around Durham looking at things you may have passed by on other walks.  The walk starts and finishes at the Rose Tree, the location for our Christmas lunch.  It follows good paths except for a small part on firm ground which is optional.  No boots required just walking shoes and jackets appropriate for the weather.  On this occasion I think I can promise no cows, no horses, no stiles and a public toilet halfway round.  The Rose Tree have agreed that we can use their carpark for the walk before the Christmas meal.
