Water Fountain in Middleton in TeesdaleThe majestic sight of a French Chateaux situated on the edge of a Northern dales market town opens up your mind to the understanding that there is more than meets the eye to be found in Teesdale.  Travelling along a route that starts in Barnard Castle, taking in the pretty villages of the dale together with the market town of Middleton in Teesdale and finally visiting Raby Castle this tour will enlighten the visitor with a wealth of interesting facts about the area and show how the impact of the dales folk from Teesdale has spread well beyond the boundaries of the dale.

The tour also includes a suggested delightful short walk from Bowes museum along the river to stunning English Heritage site at Egglestone abbey.  With some steep and uneven sections this route offers great views of the river.
