River Deerness


The Deerness is a river in County Durham. It is a tributary to the River Browney, which feeds into the River Wear. The River Deerness begins near Tow Law and meanders eastwards through Dearness Valley, fed by several small tributaries including Stanley Beck, Crow Gill, Cuddy Burn, Hedleyhope Burn, Rowley Burn, Holburn Beck and Red Burn. Overall the Deerness is 14.6 km long and its catchment area covers 53 km2.[1] The river flows by settlements including WaterhousesUshaw Moor and Esh Winning before joining the River Browney near Langley Moor. There has been a major restoration project to improve the water quality and remover barriers to fish migration on the Deerness.[1, 2, 3].
