Next, we head to Weardale, in the heart of the Pennines - probably the least known major dale of the English uplands, yet the scenery is stunning and unspoilt, with the beautiful and gentle River Wear. We take a break at Stanhope before continuing along the dale and across the moors to Alston, high in the North Pennines. Enjoy a trip on England's highest narrow-gauge railway, the South Tynedale before returning along the Tyne Valley.
