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 and runners, wheelchair users, horse-riders and cyclists.

When using our railway paths, please remember to follow the government guidance on social distancing. Railway paths are multi-user, shared routes - please be aware and respectful of others.
