Gateway onto the old line near Eden Hill
Gateway onto the old line near Eden Hill
This old railway ran across the fields west of West Pelton to Stanley and was used for colliery traffic. It ceased operations in 1946 and was lifted in 1952, but the route can still be traced in parts, such as here. The public path crosses it here, at the site of an old farm called High Twizell. This is shown on old O S maps of the 1920's and earlier but must have been abandoned and cleared years ago.
