Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season until at least early July and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. There will be no public events until early July at the latest.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

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.
