Autumn Colour in Weardale

Shittlehope Burn, which runs into the river Wear from the north at Stanhope.

There is a circular walk from Stanhope taking in the burn and, later, the great disused Ashes quarry.

It was muddy underfoot at this time of year, and you need to hop across the burn at a couple of locations, but on a bright autumn day, a magical journey.
