TWN | Walking Group - Penshaw 8 mile circular

A circular walk starting at Herrington Country Park around the lake and then towards Penshaw Monument.

The walk itself is relatively easy but has been classed as moderate because some tracks, although good surfaces, are uneven and have loose stones underfoot.  

The steepest incline is stairs towards Penshaw Monument. The walk is expected to last around 4 hours (including a break) and the distance is 8 miles with an ascent of 495 feet.
