Tyne to Tees Walk: Hartlepool Headland to The Tees

It was the last leg today of this wonderful walk. I had walked, as you have seen in previous posts, from the River Tyne and so far to Hartlepool Headland. The landscape would change yet again this day, and so much more to discover! Hartlepool Headland is a place full of varying interests. There is the famous Heugh battery Museum that I shall do a special standalone post on next. The views out to sea and the North Yorkshire coast are immense plus there is the old church to discover and rock pooling heaven for the family. Many of...

Tyne To Tees Walk: Easington Colliery to Beyond Crimdon

It was day three of my walk from the River Tyne to the River Tees. The weather had become greyer than the last couple of days but that wasn’t about to spoil the walk at all, nor was it going to spoil the beauty and views.

Ahead as you walk up the outcrop comes into view. Hard to believe this was the site of a colliery even as late as 1991 that employed...
