Railway paths


Come and experience Durham's railway legacy. The railway paths - former railway lines - are attractive countryside routes that can be used by walkers, wheelchair users, horse-riders and cyclists.

Walkers, wheelchair users, horse-riders and cyclists are all allowed to use the railway paths. Please take care when other users are around and follow the Railway Paths Visitor Charter (PDF, 371kb).
