From Jarrow along the Bowes Railway Path to Tanfield Railway Museum. The Bowes Railway path is becoming a joining route for NCN7 and NCN14. There are 2 small hills, nothing too taxing.

Did it this morning,not bad but too many barriers

Got to agree with Jay, too many barriers and the part between Leam Lane and Bowes Railway Museum is in a terrible state, come on Gateshead council get your act together

I did this yesterday and aside from the lots of barriers I thought it was a great course.Really challenging on the uphills (of which there are lots) but it makes for a great journey back! :)
