24th October – The town of Brampton is linked to its station on the Newcastle to Carlisle (Tyne Valley Line) by a recreational path a little over one mile long called the Dandy Line. The east/west railway being constructed in the 1840s well away from the old market centre required a connection and it was provided by a horse-drawn carriage. With the autumn leaves to kick under foot it makes a peaceful wander away from the madding crowd.
