Summary: The Barningham Trail is a walk devised by Ed Coles, a local walking enthusiast. It is a circular walk linking Teesdale in Durham with the Arkengarthdale valley in the Yorkshire Dales. From the start in Barningham the route heads south on to Barningham Moor via Carter Allotment and Badger Way. Next visited is Osmaril Gill and Eel Hill before High Moor is reached. Though not on the path I recommend a detour to the trig pillar at How Tallow Gate before continuing from High Moor to Franinshaw Well. Next tackled in Holgate Moor and then following and crossing Kexwith Beck to reach Moresdale Ridge. From here the route follows Moresdale Road past Stony Man (or St Andrew's Cross) to reach Slee Gill which is followed downstream into the Arkengarthdale village of Booze. Those wanting to make this a leiurely two day walk could divert by taking the short walk from Booze to Langthwaite where accommodation and a welcoming hostelry await. Whether stopping or not continue from Booze on the track northwards to Peat Moor Hill from where the roadside verge is followed further north to Arndale Hill via Stang Top. Then its a north-east course through the plantation at Hope Edge to East Hope and then low moorland tracks past Haythwaite and Cow Close back to Barningham.
