Nearest Toilets – Edmundbyers – public toilets seem to be always closed, but the pub has said that we could go in there at 10am. I have booked a table in there after the walk for us.
Details: The walk starts at Edmundbyers. We leave the village near the Hostel, down across the Burnhope Burn, out across Muggleswick Park, to Coal Gate and Whinny Hill and up to Smiddy Shaw Reservoir. We then head across the road to do a short section of the Waskerley Way. We return across the easterly edge of Muggleswick Common. If weather is poor, we can do a lower, less exposed route.
