Mayor of Darlington’s Stockton and Darlington Railway Walk

What an absolutely fabulous day!!   This was organised by the Mayor of Darlington, Cllr Tom Nutt, as a result of the conference – he was really inspired.  He has used it to raise the profile of the S&DR and also get sponsorship to raise money for his charities.  The Mayor of Stockton saw us off and I ‘welcomed’ the group at the end of the walk in my role as Deputy Mayor of Shildon.  We started at the Ticket Office in Stockton and finished at Locomotion in Shildon.  I reckon about 40 people joined in at some point along the way.  My legs were sore the next day as I did the whole thing.
