St Mary’s Catholic Church in Barnard Castle stands on Newgate. Approaching from the town centre the church will be on the left side of Newgate. A little way past the church and on the opposite side of the road is a public footpath sign leading along Parsons Lonnen. Take this route to descend across fields and stone stiles to the River Tees. Follow the riverside path downstream (ie with the river on the right) until a steep uphill path through woodland leads to the main road and Abbey Bridge. Cross the River Tees here and turn immediately right towards the majestic ruins of Egglestone Abbey. Return the same way or extend the walk following public footpaths across fields in the direction of Barnard Castle where a footbridge over the River Tees leads back to the town centre.
