Weardale Way – Pelaw Woods Closure Update

From Durham County Council’s Public Rights of Way team: “At Pelaw Woods site investigations are continuing to identify the cause and possible solutions to the landslip. As it stands this is a work in progress and until we have the report we don’t know yet what exactly will be happening. On Saturday 18th May further damage was caused to the riverbank at Maiden Castle (adjacent to the bit we were working on) so we will now be repairing this additional section too. However, this doesn’t alter the sections of path already shut…works will continue into June for about another 3 weeks. Let us hope that the river does not flood again in the meantime. We’ve today updated the signage along the affected and adjacent paths. We are working to secure long term solutions to the riverbank erosion and thank you and your members for their patience.”
