New Morrison's store at Consett
New Morrison's store at Consett
The retail park at the western end of Consett is currently undergoing massive redevelopment. Prominent is the new Morrison's store which is being constructed on the site formerly occupied by some smaller businesses. Beyond, obscured by trees, is the new Matalan store.

In the foreground is a junction on the National Cycle Network, with route 7 (C2C, Consett and Sunderland path) continuing to the right of the dual carriageway in the distance (Consett by-pass which runs along the line of the old Stanhope and Tyne Railway) whilst route 14 (Derwent Valley Path) branches off to the left.

Also in the foreground is one of the National Cycle Network milestones donated to the project by the Royal Bank of Scotland. This specimen is one of the "Welsh" design by Andrew Rowe, and takes its inspiration from the industrial and nautical heritage of the artist's home in Swansea. An alternative explanation is that it is derived from a Welsh love-spoon.
