Baybridge Picnic Area

  • Description

    "...The River Derwent runs alongside this small picnic area. The river used to be the boundary between County Durham and Northumberland. Hundreds of years ago the river changed its course but the boundary stayed the same this is why the picnic site, although north of the river, belongs to Durham County Council. The sound of the flowing water is very peaceful and this is a nice place to stop and have a picnic. While sitting, look out for dippers and kingfishers by the water and buzzards flying overhead. Baybridge is an ideal starting point for walking. Within reach are moorland walks, woodland walks through places such as Deborah Wood and Gibraltar,wonderful riverside walks to Carricks picnic area and an Easy Access route to the historic village of Blanchland...."
