Description"Footpath towards Whitwell Grange from Sherburn House. The path is on an embankment across the culverted Chapman Beck which was constructed as a waggonway taking coals from Cassop Vale. The waggonway pre-dates the Leamside line which it crosses at Whitwell and joined the line from Shincliffe village towards Sunderland. The junction later gained a third branch with the construction of the line to Durham Elvet. All these railways and waggonways are now closed." Photo by David Robinson, 2018.
