Cornriggs Post Office & Traveller's Rest

Onto the main road now, I walked past 2 adjoining houses, the photo on the right was previously the Cornriggs Post Office & general Stores. Harvey Walton, who wrote several books about Weardale used to live here and run the shop. The photo on the right used to be the Traveller's Rest, a pub until about the 50s. The Walton family continued to own the Old Post Office until both of his grand-daughters died within a few weeks of each other a few years ago. It was then bought by a builder and renovated and is now up for sale again.
