Durham Cow Pocket Guides - Weardale Way & Teesdale Way

Durham Trail Guidebooks ON THE WAY!

Just a quick post to say that, after several years out of print, I finally got to grips with revising our popular walking guide, The Weardale Way – A Guided Tour along the River Wear, through County Durham and Sunderland, due for re-publication by March 2020 at the latest. If you bought one of the 250 copies that we printed back in 2012, hang onto it, it might be worth something in a few years! The second edition will be slightly different, more compact and spirally bound, so it opens fully and stows easily in a pocket. It’s still packed with information, with more photographs to help you plan your journey and ensure that you miss nothing on this historic trail.

To keep it company, I’m also publishing another guide, The Teesdale Way – Cumbria to the Coast along the River Tees, through County Durham and North Yorkshire. The Teesdale Way is the other of Durham’s ‘Big Two’ walking trails. Starting just over the border in Dufton, Cumbria, the 90-odd-mile trail crosses the Pennines before picking up the River Tees at Cow Green and following it to the North Sea at Teesmouth. Both books are well into production now and will be perfect companions for either of our wonderful County Durham trails next spring.

I’ll be posting regular updates on the blog if you’d like to keep track of progress. If you’re interested, and you’d like to buy either, or both, of these books, let me know so I can put yours aside and get a better idea of potential print runs and price. For now though, happy walking!

  1. Can you tell me if the Weardale Way and Teesdale Way Guide Books will be available to buy from bookshops or is there another distributor?

    I would like to purchase both.

    1. Hi Jill,

      I only sell the books via the website in order to balance quality and margin given the relatively low numbers printed. Following the success of the first edition I intend to get more printed next time! All the best. Scott
