Country path on a disused railway track
Country path on a disused railway track
The single track railway originally ran between Sunderland and the point 1/2 km South West where it joined a main railway line and on to Durham. The line had a long history starting with a wagonway in 1737. For more information see:

The line was closed in the 1960s and later converted to a path / bridleway.
The barriers are to deter the local TWOCers (TWOC = taking without consent = car theft, usually followed by setting the vehicle on fire after a joyride).
