River Derwent (NYM) – Upper Course

This section of the river Derwent is great for A Level river fieldwork.

There are two ways to access the River Derwent. The first is via Gatela Rd (and walking across the marked footpath through farmland) though you join the river some way from its source.

The alternative (and more adventurous route) is starting your walk on the A169 just north of  RAF Fylingdales here: 54.372838, -0.680477
