The Teesdale Way : From Dufton to the North Sea Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


A guidebook to The Teesdale Way which follows the River Tees for exactly 100 miles from its source near Dufton to its outlet at Middlesbrough on the north-east coast.

The Way is divided into eight stages of moderate walking and takes about a fortnight to complete.

The route leads through varied country - wild moorland and deep dales, many with dramatic waterfalls, gentle pastures and industrial towns.

Not everyone will wish to tackle the Teesdale Way in one go.

A final chapter in this book describes ten circular day walks designed to combine parts of the Teesdale Way with footpaths through fine countryside flanking the river on both sides.

Reprinted with updates in 2013.

Review by

I used this guide recently to walk this route from the Pennines to the north sea at Middlesborough. It's good in that no supplementary maps are necessary though they may be thought a useful addition for doing the trek at a more leisurely pace than my own time of two and a half days. My only complaint is that I found the 'alternative direction options' rather confusing. They are placed in a dedicated tinted panel but even so I ocassionally found difficulty in separating them from the main text. I always think it difficult to review walking guides as so much depends on the skill of the reader, his or her interpretative abilities and the ease with which an 'ear' is developed for the author's route instructions. A proper review requires an assessment of reader and publication. And as it got me to the end of the trek with no real problems (blisters apart) it is undoubtably 'fit for purpose'.
