We walk south on the High St (past Yarm school) to Worsall Rd where we'll join a public footpath to the south bank of the river Tees. We follow the river passing under the railway viaduct to Yarm bridge, up Stoney Bank to the 11th century village of Egglescliffe - with its wonderful view over the Tees valley and 12th century parish church of St John the Baptist. We have lunch on the village green. After lunch, we wend our way through farmland (fields of barley, wheat, sheep, horses & cows) down to the north bank of the river Tees and follow this back to Yarm Wharf and the Town Hall. We pass where the river Leven joins the Tees, and again pass Yarm school on the opposite bank. There are a number of venues in the High St to have a cuppa fter the walk.
Overall, a gentle walk (although 1st part of riverside could be muddy & slippery depending on weather) with Stoney Bank a short, sharp climb (tarmac). Total distance is approximately seven miles in length.
