Please sign the below petition if you'd like to see Stanhope ford, in Weardale, kept open. The ford has been threatened with permanent closure since May this year, and now its closure looks even more likely with the huge cuts to the north east's transport budget courtesy of the liblabconmen.
The ford is a popular local landmark, and families regularly go there to picnic when the weather is good. Durham County Council has used various excuses to try to get the ford closed, including citing the death of a person in a completely different ford nearly 100 miles away in North Yorkshire.
