Three walks start from Frosterley Station on the Weardale Railway, which look at some of the old quarrying remains of Frosterley and their effects on the landscape. Here a special type of limestone is found; this fossil-rich stone, known as Frosterley Marble, can be polished to a high shine. Although technically, it is not a proper marble.
