An ideal spot to walk off festive excess. The Arch forms part of an old railway line now embraced by dense woodland. Popular with dog walkers and those anxious to lose some excess baggage.

A walk around this structure is interesting considering its age and history. If visiting at the weekend, you can also enjoy a trip on the Tanfield railway.

Lovely walk through a deep gorge. Worth visiting at different times of the year as it changes so much. Very nice when the bluebells and wild garlic are in flower. Good place to walk dogs, several places where they can play in the burn.

Nice place for a relaxing walk around the woods taking in the history of the surroundings. A nice place for a picnic to take the children with the Tanfield railway just up the road.
