If you don't like the barriers in #71175, there is also the option of taking the stairs to the Bowes Railway Path.

A choice of barriers on the access path from the Bowes Railway Path.

Path junction with Bowes Railway Path

The Bowes Railway Path under the A1 dual carriageway no less, in a poor condition on all counts.

Steps up to Long Bank, in reasonably good condition compared to the surrounding infrastructure.

Due to the low bridges, horse-riders need to dismount. I noticed that at the similar sign on the other side of the low bridges that there was a concrete block to assist riders dismounting. But on this side it is too overgrown to get to.

Poor quality surface on the Bowes Railway Path.

A very poor quality cycle path.

The Bowes Railway Path is in a very poor condition. The ramp to Newcastle Bank has a step at the end where it hasn't been tied into the main path properly.

The off-ramp from the Bowes Railway Path to Newcastle Bank.

Overgrown steps down to the Bowes Railway Path, signed as a pedestrian access. Anyone not wishing to use this needs to cross the main road for the ramp.

Right turns onto the Bowes Railway Path are to be made by continuing up Newcastle Bank to the traffic island (see #71018).
