Guided walks feedback


In very bad weather some walks may be cancelled. If you are in any doubt please contact us. This number is monitored, so if you leave a message with your name and number, someone will return your call. 

Alternatively you can access our Durham Countryside Volunteers on Facebook page which will give you details of cancelled walks. 

Please bear in mind that weather and travelling conditions can change within a few hours, and while we do our best to keep you informed, occasionally a walk may be cancelled at very short notice. If you are in any doubt, please do not travel.

We value your feedback in helping us to continue to improve the countryside for the benefit of people and wildlife. If you would like to tell us about a recent visit to one of our countryside sites please complete our Parks and Countryside Service: Customer Satisfaction Survey. Please note, this survey is for general feedback only.
