We’re taking a look at some of the easily-overlooked attractions right on our doorstep.

This week, Ryhope South Beach is our focus.

The beach was once a famous location often visited by the Bishops of Durham for bathing, but has long since been forgotten.

After taking a walk through a very misleading tunnel, you come to a winding path which is home to a variety of animals.

Eventually, you are rewarded with a quiet and secluded beach with misty views of jagged cliffs, and picturesque sights.
