Been down to the riverside route in Durham today took a couple of photos, looks like the barrier near the west end of the problem area has been damaged and pushed over. ! Also noticed Durham Council Sign but still no official diversion yet.

Barriers knocked over.

Passing through Deerness Valley, briefly near the Broompark Picninc Area.

With a total distance of 153 miles the Walney to Wear is a challenging route, so you may want to break your journey into sections.

This is a spectacular “Coast to Coast” cycle route, starting on the Island of Walney-in-Furness, passing through Barrow-in-Furness and the South Lakes. You can enjoy the Market town of Kendal, before cycling through the stunning Howgills and climbing to England‘s highest pub (Tan Hill at 1732 ft).  What a bonus! The Cycle Route takes you through the beautiful and historic Barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland and Durham, finishing in the old industrial heartlands of the North East .

The route is part of the National Cycle Network taking in the Lake District Peninsulars, North Pennines and the Land of the Prince Bishop. It has been designated regional route 20.
