WALKING THE WEARDALE WAY - WESTGATE TO ROOKHOPE
Today's mission was to initially walk the Weardale Way from Westgate to Stanhope, unfortunately things didn't go to plan and I had to cut the walk short at Rookhope. That being said we still had an interesting five and a half mile walk with some fine views across the dale.
In keeping with my "one way only" ethos the plan was to park in Stanhope, get the bus to Westgate and then walk back to Stanhope. The day got off to a good start when we found a parking place in Stanhope market place right next to the bus stop which, as an added bonus was free.
