Weardale Villages

This site is being sponsored by the Weardale Community Partnership to form a first contact point for local residents and businesses within the area of Weardale, Co.Durham.

The site aims to provide a means of informing you of services and events, but don't think it ends there. We want your involvement too. We hope to provide sections which will allow you to submit your events, comments, photos and art work relevant to the Dale.

Weardale Community Transport

Weardale Community Transport (WCT) is a major project of Weardale Community Partnership (WCP). A manager and a part-time paid driver administer it from the Weardale Hub in Stanhope at the Weardale Business Centre. A team of volunteer drivers provide very valuable support.

Two minibuses are available for hire - either with a qualified self-driver; a volunteer or our paid driver. Both buses are equipped to carry wheelchairs.

A one-off membership fee is required and this remains active.

Parties of up to thirteen can be catered for in each bus - fourteen if the driver is part of the party.
