Footbridge over the A1(M)
This carries the Weardale Way across the motorway.
Weardale Way
A 77 mile route following the River Wear from the sea at the Lindesfarne Memorial, Sunderland to the headwaters in the east Pennines, keeping as close as is possible to the river. It visits Lumley Castle, Durham (where the Castle and Cathedral forms a World Heritage Site), Bishop Auckland and Stanhope. After Stanhope the Way makes a northward loop to Rookhope to take in part of a tributary, Rookhope Burn.
A1 & A1(M), Great North Road
The A1 is the longest numbered road in the UK at 410 miles long. It connects London with Edinburgh, via the east of England.
For much of its path it follows the Great North Road the old coaching route between London and Edinburgh. Several sections of the route are classified as motorway A1(M). The modern A1 bypasses the towns the Great North Road passed through and is dual carriageway for most of its route through England.
