Artificial lake at Silksworth, Sunderland
Artificial lake at Silksworth, Sunderland
This lake is artificial, created on the site of a former colliery in Sunderland's suburbs. The blue sign to the right of the image indicates that the path forms part of the Walney to Wear (W2W) cycle route, a long distance route across northern England from Walney Island to Sunderland.
Walney to Wear (W2W) cycle route

The Walney to Wear (W2W) cycle route is a long-distance route across the north of England. It stretches for 151 miles from Walney Island, on the west coast close to the town of Barrow-in-Furness, and ends in Sunderland on the east coast. Sunderland is at the mouth of the River Wear. There is also a branch to Whitby, which makes a longer route than the route to Sunderland. The W2W crosses the Pennines, passing England's highest pub (Tan Hill Inn) which is 1,732 feet above sea level.

More information about the W2W can be found on the Sustrans website LinkExternal link
