The Big Smile 2021 - Stage 49 : Consett Steel and Swords

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!*

Our journey through the Derwent Valley begins at Allensford picnic area and then up through leafy woodland towards the impressive Hownsgill viaduct - one of the most impressive railway structures in North-East England, towering 46 metres above the tree canopy - before picking up the Waskerley Way to Rowley.

Dropping down into Comb Bridges, we’re surrounded by some beautiful woodland, before we cross the River Derwent and rise up to Crooked Oak. This is a truly stunning part of the valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and home to a wide variety of wildlife.

We head to Wallish Walls, before circling back towards Allensford through meadows and woodland, following the river to the start. A very scenic stage with scattered reminders of the area’s rich industrial heritage.
