Attended by 2 people including 1 Parish Councillor 


Janine Forster

Paths walked - 12 and 13


Route description


The walk started at Hurworth Grange, using path 12 from the back of the Grange and then down Dents Hill. We then took path 13 and came out at the side of the Comet.  From there, we passed over Croft bridge, and took the road towards Middleton Tyas, down Spa Bank and over the old Spa bridge. Care had to be taken here, as there is no path along this part of the road. At this point, we took the footpath through Canny Well Woods. Two new gates have been fitted along this walk.  We then took the farm track back towards Croft, passing Stand Alone house and back along over Croft bridge, then up Croft bank before finishing back at Hurworth Grange, where we started.


The 2 Stiles we crossed were slightly slippy, but in good order  

Walk Length – 3.63 miles

Walk Time - 1.26.45 Hrs
