Hetton Colliery Railway
The trackbed of a historic railway line, built in 1822 (Engineer: George Stephenson) and the first designed for steam locomotives from the start. It predates Stockton and Darlington. Now mostly a path, it is notable for its hilly course with numerous inclines. The last bit of the track was lifted in 1960.

There is no sign of the railway's historic significance on the ground.
