Wearhead to Stanhope

14.5km of grade 3 (4) on the river Wear

Fun grade 3 run after the 6m grade 4 waterfall at the start. If running all the way to Stanhope, beware of the sticky weir above the bridge.

Getting There

Putin · Takeout

Highest put-in is at the bridge in Cowshill (technically on Killhope Burn), if you drive up from Wearhead you will see the waterfall from the road that you want to put-in above. If you don't want to run the waterfall, pr levels are low, put-in at Wearhead. Various take-outs possible, either at the bridges in Daddry Shield or Eastgate or above the ford in Stanhope.
