Chester Le Street
Tel: +44 03000 264 589
It is suitable for walkers and wheelchair users.
Waldridge Fell has had many uses over the years; grazing, part of the Prince Bishops' hunting chase and even a military training ground during the Napoleonic Wars. Extensive coal mining took place from the early 1800's until 1963. Waldridge colliery and village community thrived here. The present car parks are named after the rows of houses that once stood here.
There are panoramic views across the Fell and surrounding countryside. A number of waymarked routes around the site enable you to experience different parts of the Fell. Guided walks often take place around this fascinating site.
Waldridge Fell has two Easy Access routes - a circular around the North fell and a linear route linking Tinkler Row and Ellen St car parks.
