Looking along the line of the old railway near Eden Hill
Looking along the line of the old railway near Eden Hill
This is looking west from the site of the old farm at High Twizell. The trees mark the route of the line to Stanley. This was originally part of the very early Stanhope and Tyne Railway of 1834. This section of the line was bypassed by the Beamish diversion in 1893, but carried on in use for colliery traffic until 1946. Unlike a lot of former railways in the area, this one has not been converted into a footpath, and there is no public access to the surviving bits of the route.
