Heritage 100 Walks100 Walks, 100 Stories
The Heritage 100 project aims to create 100 collectable walks throughout County Durham.
Each route will be circular: beginning (and ending) at one of the distinctive Heritage 100 marker posts. Every walk will be between three and ten miles and will be spread throughout the county from the Heritage coast through the vale of Durham and out into the Durham dales. A wide and wonderful area to explore.
Every H100 walk will have a name and a narrative, a story to connect people to the industrial and environmental heritage of the area.
The Heritage 100 aims to bring people together. People are beginning to understand that walking not only improves physical health but fosters emotional well-being. We want people to ‘collect’ our walks together with friends and family. We want visitors to come and walk the fantastic paths and trails to discover the fantastic countryside and the industrial history of the area.
Click on the walk to access the route, route directions and the story of the walk which includes points of interest and details of nearby attractions.
