A Boot Up Durham City

The Pixz Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks books that attract families and others to exploring the countryside in a leisurely way. It includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the area well.

The walks provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families.

Durham is a good place to live. Because of its small size it offers all the advantages of a city without the disadvantages. These ten country walks are all within the boundary of the city and each stands as a walk by itself but with a bit of careful planning parts of two or even more can easily be combined to give a longer walk.

For the most part these footpaths are easy going although as with all walking it is probably safer to wear boots or stout footwear – most are dog friendly and have been thoroughly tested and approved by Archie, the author’s Labrador.

The 10 walks included are centred on:

FINCHALE PRIORY • DURHAM RIVER BANKS • HOUGHALL • SHINCLIFFE WOODS • OBSERVATORY HILL • KEPIERWOOD • FRANKLAND • PITTINGTON AND RENNIE’S LANE • SHINCLIFFE BRIDGE • BEARPARK

Philip Nixon has for many years led photographic walks throughout the County as part of Durham County Council’s Walks Programme. For over 30 years he has enjoyed a successful multi-award winning career as a professional photographer and has been commissioned by companies and organisations all over Britain. He has his own photographic library of over 80,000 images and his work has been published worldwide in countless magazines, newspapers, calendars, brochures and books. His other books for Halsgrove include A Portrait of Durham.
