Monkton, Monkton Lane, north footpath to Bede's Well
Pedestrian Transport Site
West of The Grange (HER 8167) is the north footpath which linked Monkton village (HER 152) to Bede's Well (HER 178). It originally crossed open fields behind the settlement, later a slag heap (HER 8279). The footpath leaves Monkton Lane past high brick and stone boundary walls and a close-boarded fence then enters Campbell Park (HER 8126). The path is separated from Grange Farm's farmyard (HER 8494) by brick boundary walls, stone farm buildings and a wedge of young trees.
