Very Pleasant for Walking
Feb 2021
I visited during the most recent lockdown on a Sunday, and it was extremely busy. There is parking, however on a Sunday it is a popular spot. It is ideal for walking and a very pleasant spot in woodland, near a river and also the world's oldest railway. There are also refreshments signposted nearby.

Historic site.

A wonderful location for those interested in history and nature. The oldest standing railway bridge in the world is set in dense woodland.

Historical
Aug 2020
Thought to be the oldest railway bridge in the world and when it was built in 1727 it was the largest single-span bridge in the country. Built to carry coal on a waggonway from a nearby colliery. It's in a beautiful setting so as well as the bridge itself there are lovely walks in the area.

Car park entrance & leaving confusion.
Jul 2020 • Friends
Lovely walk but new visitors try & leave by the car park entrance instead of leaving through the one way arch as intended.

More open views in winter

The valley is lovely anytime, but with leaves off the trees the views were more open. Lovely walk to Tanfield and back on a crisp cold day.

Lovely views and scenery with a short Woodlands walk to the Arch. Alongside Tanfield Railway (the world's oldest railway) longer walks through the woods after the Arch and a must for people interested in photography

Great walking
Oct 2019 • Couples
Visited late afternoon after a rather wet couple of days and as expected it was a bit slippery under foot.
The scenery is really beautiful but it was late in the year so not at it's best we suspected. Has great views from above and in the gorge and Tanfield railway in its proximity so all good. Worth a visit and spending a bit of time here. Recommended for all ages but there is a bit of a climb.

Stunning, historic.
Sep 2019
The Causey Arch (also known as the Tanfield Arch) is a stunning piece of 18th century historic engineering. We reached it on the halfway point of our walk from Beamish Hall Hotel. The setting is magnificent as was the walk up to it.
