Legend on the Weardale Way (Sections 12-14)
I'm justa. For. Wayfaring. Stranger. Back. On the weird Dale way back at Chester Lee Street. Today. We're. Going to finish the walk we're going to do sections, 12, 13. And 14 right. To the very end 17. Miles, so. I've got an ear infection and. A prote infection, which isn't going to help much. Back. With Neal again. The, infection. That's, right suddenly become very busy. It. Was quiet before, I started talking and, I put, the camera down will be no more cars. Behind. Me is lonely castle it. Was, converted. From, a form of manor house in 1389. By. Sir Ralph Lumley, that Lisa, Roth was executed, for treason in 1400. Eventually. The castle came into the hands of his grandson. Thomas Lumley in 1421. Who. Was made constable, of Scarborough, Castle. Love leaves eventually became, the elves of Scarborough. In, 1946. Picasso lease was bought by term University, and. The castle was used as dorms, until. The lease expired, in 1970s. Today. The castle is run as a luxury hotel but, it's still owned by the lovely family, know. About giant, hogweed, it's. Huge. Those. Big blasts over here even bigger today. We've. Missed a path somewhere. We're. Supposed to come onto this golf course just for a little bit and then we've, been looking. Along. The sides of these fans for somewhere in to the wood and. The. Way, that way it goes into the wood but, this fence aside being Bob Wyatt and there's been like no science or anything off the. Entrance into the wood oh it's, very overgrown at least. So. A, bat rack in the back or. See if we could spot a place and if not we'll have to try and work out the detour of how. We're going to get around, okay. So unless, we've got the wrong bridge here. We. Can't find the way onto the we're dealing so, we're gonna have to go, towards, the castle look. To see if there is another bridge and if not we'll have to have. A look at the map and see if there's an alternative route but we can take but. There's. No way onto the way till we're on this side okay.
So, This. Guy. Navigators. Okay. We can. We. Took the wrong bridge there's, another bridge. And. The. Bridge is just over there okay. When you're coming along by the river you. Want the stone bridge you. Don't want the metal bridge as. We found out. The. Metal bridge takes you the wrong way. Okay. They break, the bed say. There's. There's underneath be a one. The, winner wears very poorly so posted on this section, it's. A set. That's the wrong way a couple, of times now. I'm. Not sure catch us on the camera fell. Over there is a giant. Sundial. The. Way their way takes, a wide detour around the edge of the privately-owned, Lampton, estate the. Seat of the Earl of Durham. The. Estates was bought by the lanterns, from, the headwear family, in 1688. This. Is one of the gate entrances. We're, taking a break for lunch the. Midway point. The ami is worm hill, according. To legend, this, is the hill but the Knapton where wrapped herself around, doc, pencil, hill which is sometimes mistaken, as the hill the. Story goes but John Lambton was fishing in the we're on the Sunday, when. He caught an eel like fish but, she thought looked rather queer, so. He threw it down a well and fought, laughing of it off, John, went at the Crusades, and. While he was way the, creature grew very big and. Started eating sheep cattle and children. Several. Attempts were made to kill it but. Each time it, was cut it miraculously. Joined, itself back together eventually. John, came back and consulted. A witch on, how to kill the web she. Told him to make a suit of armor with swords a touch to it event. To fight the worm in the river, so. About what it wrapped itself around him, it, would cut itself up and the, river would wash away the pieces before it could reform again but. The witches price was, about john killed, the, first thing but he saw afterwards, the. Trick worked and John. Had arranged. For his favorite hound to, pay the witches price, so. He blew out his horde for, the dog to be released. However. On, hearing, the sound of the Horde his. Father was so happy to hear that his sons success he. Ran to meet it and, beat the hound, John. Killed by hound instead. Of his father but. It did not pay the price and. The. Lanterns, were. Cursed to, meet violent, ends. With. Larger. Drops at a Yellow Door, English, lads, heard it drops after it. This. Year is the Victoria, viaduct. Work. Started on the bridge in 1836. And it was completed in 1838. It. Was designed by James, Walker and the. Chief engineer was. Thomas Eliot Harrison, and. Was used as a railway bridge until 1991. At. The time but it was opened, its.
Archers, Were. The second highest and. Second, longest, in Europe. It's. Quite a magnificent. Structure. So, we're taking a detour off the weird L way to do panchal environment, it's. Recommended. Detour. And. Our. West map, as. A footpath, that. Goes up past. This property, which, belongs to lumped in a state and. We. Were stopped from going any further by, the owner. Of the property or the person who rents the property any case and. She. Told us about this not all right the way anymore and that we can't use that right of way I, would. See who I get wrong I'll, be checking that because. This sticks another two miles on our journey, so. Putting. All the false. Starts. What we fired like the faulty paths what we've gone along. This. Hike, it's. Probably going to end up being about 20 miles, that. Not. Particularly happy to be asked. Okay. I think this is the path that we should have took up but. The house down the bottom there prevent others using it. These. Are really opened up nicely now. Now. Much of a view the V Hollis. That's. Your money made everyone in this. Seat that's one hell of a detour. Really. Hot. As. Your monument was built in 1844. As a memorial to the first Earl of Durham John. George Lambton, know locally, as radical, jack. You. Can go to the top of the monument. Small. Fee of five pound. The. Secret staircase. That's. Inside one of the pillows. Radical. Jack is known for his role in passing, the Reform Bill of 1832. Forth. First step towards a modern democracy in the UK. We. Headed over there, to. The end, still. Got quite along with the walk. Stiffly. I see where we've come from. Actually. Probably come from there and we've got all the way around, the. Lamp in the state. Radical. Jack also, played an important role in the history of Canada who's. Known as Lord durable. This, here is Alice well, sometimes. Known as the mystery well because. Nobody, knows who. Ever is, Alice. There's. A nice little grotto. Yeah. Let's. Punch your monument up there this. Is probably one, of the last fields, we'll see I think. Once we get past here, we. Start entering. Industry. That's. Your monuments over there. 20. Minutes ago it was over there oh. Yeah. We. Passed it ages ago, according. To this we have imposters at all. Okay. So I've got the 14, mile mark now just. Don't know approach the 819. It's. The. Heat more than anything else he'd. Start to get to me. About. These but 819. Not. Far from here was the Battle of Bolden Hill, 1644. Part. Of the English Civil War, basically. The two sides were, on opposite sides of Hill fired. The cannons at each other for, a day and then left. It's. Quite an impressive concrete, structure, this. Or. As far south filter, now on. The last stretch in the Sunderland. Somewhere. On that side of the river is, the HQ - big house I. Sent. Them an email asking. If we could visit and we were planning on doing a detour but coming on a weekday for them but. Then. Walking in Department never got back to us so. Don't. Buy big house. By. Mamutu, instead. Another. Misdirection. On the trail. Probably. Other than over half mile at least and. We're. All uphill, something. Go back downhill now. There's. Only been, one. Marker. For the weird deal where on the entire trail since just Ali Street and that, was that lonely castle. We're. A little lost. The. Weird there where houses going up past, the cliffs and. The. Puffs was very overgrown, there's. No signage. I've. Come into this paddock.
Just. Bounced all the way around but. Somehow we've got to find our way across the, rail line over there. It. Could be either this corner, or. It could be over there, I've. Got a feeling it's going to be this corner like this that, could be a bridge over there. There's. A look back towards big house H cube. So, we found ourselves. No. Way there's. A tunnel just there. I'll. Guess to where we want. The. Car shows do with trespass, or. Do we go back along there and try and find where we're supposed to cross I think it's time for another trespass. On the we're day away don't. You know, so. I. Certainly, think that's going to go. Then. This is the new road for the, bridge. Let's, just hope we can get out on the other side. Yeah. It. Will go through there Shirley. Little, back on track. Oh. Yeah. That. Was actually more difficult than a lot about to crawl underneath the fence and, just as we'll do so a police car drove by but luckily it didn't see us so. Let's. Continue the way their way we're back on track now. Let's, the queen Alexander, bridge. Walter, I don't have anything to tell you about it, I'm. Too tired to make something up. Cross. The river is a stadium of slight. It's. Where, southern Athletic Football. Club Way and, it's. The biggest, stadium. In England's, third. Tier of football. The. Original, bridge that was built in this spot was. Built in 1796. And at the time it was the largest single-span. Bridge, in the world. Do. The volume of traffic a new, bridge was needed and. The current where mouth bridge was, started, in 1927. And, completed, in 1929. Here, in the end now. Another. List two, more. Miles and. Not. Only at the end Atticus. This. Harris said Peter's Church the. Original Church was built around, 674. AD it's. Where a bead started, this monastic, life, little. Remains of the original Church, and was, considerably, built upon in the 10th century again. In the 13th 14th. And again, in the 19th centuries. So. We've made it to the safe, this. Is Raqqa beach and. Now we've got to walk along until we find beat cross. Ciara's. Feed crops the. Marks the beginning and end of the weird airway. That's. The under that we had there away everybody, hope. You've enjoyed our journey. Today. We. Walked 20, and a half miles, 33. Kilometers, it's. Been quite tiring with the heat and. Obviously. I haven't been feeling very well I'm on antibiotics so, I didn't help either but. It's. A hard walk but. We, finished or, at the Sikh we're at rope Karen Sunland and. We've gone from pillar to rock. Grants unrelenting. Neil. Yes. How. Have you found the way there wind tiring. Very. Tiring. What, YouTube, is doing it. Right. Now I just feel like a shower and. A wine and, some food. And you know enjoy it I have, enjoyed this but, I'm tired today. I think probably the heat is wrong. Whether, yeah, maybe. Too much in one section yeah. Today, was too much in one section she's. Really spread it into two I think, that, just. A little, pinch your monument and I'm from paranal monument at the end would be good enough, but.
