Track near Lintz Green Station
Track near Lintz Green Station
This is the route of the Derwent Walk path which follows the trackbed of the former Consett Branch railway from Swalwell to Shotley Bridge and Consett. North of Lintz Green Station the gardens of Station Cottages have been extended over the railway trackbed necessitating an 85m (90 yard) westwards deviation.
Derwent Walk

The Derwent Valley Railway from Blaydon to Consett operated from 1867 to 1953. It has now been converted into a popular walking and cycling path, part of National Cycle Network, route 14. There is an ongoing proposal that the railway might be reinstated.
