Consett is a vibrant town in North West Durham, just 20 minutes drive from Durham City, the Metro Centre and Newcastle upon Tyne. The surrounding countryside is spectacular. Consett sits above the rural Derwent Valley, nestled on the edge of the Pennines and the Derwent reservoir is a local beauty spot and one of the many tourist attractions.
The Coast to Coast (C2C or Sea to Sea) cycle route passes through Consett and is known as the UK’s most popular long-distance cycle route.
Consett has a proud industrial heritage and Consett steel can be found across the world; including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Blackpool tower and in British nuclear submarines!
The Project Genesis Heritage Trail was completed early in 2020 the ambition to connect the industrial heritage to the stunning countryside, a trail for all to appreciate the history, the views and the future of Consett.
When you’ve walked, cycled and explored the town and the countryside, there are plenty of local cafes and eateries to refuel.
