Guided walk along the track from Andrews House to Causey.

Continue to East Tanfield Station and on the way see site of Engine house archaeological dig.
The wearing of stout footwear is advisable and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
Anyone who does not want to walk can see inside the signal box and have extra time at Marley Hill.
For those attending I suggest we make a donation towards the cost of the buffet – Tanfield Railway is a registered charity.
