2022: Beamish Museum & Causey Arch

About this event

*This is a charitable fundraising event. Please see our website for more details on the fundraising expectations for all participants joining us on The Big Smile!*

The North East’s iconic Beamish Open Air Museum is the unique start to this stage of The Big Smile, as we take a few steps back in time to the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

From here, we say goodbye to the past and head off-site, down towards Urpeth Burn, past the old paper mill, and then up the through Ousebrough Wood Nature Reserve, which is a haven for wildlife.

After wandering along Beamish Burn, we head up out of the valley towards Causey Arch, the oldest surviving single-arch railway bridge in the world. From here we turn back towards the museum, making our way through some beautiful countryside.

This walk shows us a perfect example of County Durham’s environmental and industrial heritage, and is one of the less demanding routes.
