Middleton-in-Teesdale is a very attractive small town in the centre of Teesdale. The town contains a good mix of interesting shops (including an excellent hardware store that is much larger on the inside than the outside). The Pennine Way passes close to Middleton, and the town comes as a welcome relief after a long stretch in wild and empty country. Middleton actually sits to the north of the River Tees, and the river that flows through the town is Hudeshope Beck.
