A LAYBY and section of footpath are to be closed this week as work continues on a survey into the state of a market town's historic castle walls.

Part of the east side of Bridgegate, in Barnard Castle, will be cordoned off so specialist equipment can be used as part of a close inspection of the crumbling walls.

The survey has been jointly commissioned by Durham County Council, English Heritage and Raby Estates.

The section of the footpath affected runs from the corner of the County Bridge for about 50 metres and will be closed on Thursday (January 23) and Friday (January 24), between 8am and 5pm.

The adjacent layby is closed all week.

Pedestrians are asked to use the footpath on the opposite side of the road while the works are ongoing.
