Here you can board the Steam Trains at Kingsley and Froghall station or float along the valley in Narrow Boats, or walk along the Caldon Canal Towpath.

The Church of St. Werburgh's has a Norman Tower with later additions due to fire damage. This gives the church a fascinating past, and it has a gorgeous interior.
