Teesdale Way


Teesdale Way

The Teesdale Way is a long distance walk between the North Sea coast of County Durham and the Cumbrian Pennines in England. The walk is 100 miles / 161km in length, it links in with other long distance walks such as the Pennine Way and the E2 European Walk between Harwich and Stranraer.

The Teesdale way ends in Warrenby near Redcar, having passed through the heavily industrialised Teesside area, consisting of Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees and Thornaby-on-Tees. This gives a great insight into the once proud ship building and industrial heritage of the North East.

Between Yarm and Croft-on-Tees the river goes through the meandering lowland section of the Tees Valley. As the river heads downstream Upper Teesdale it passes through the historic settlements of Piercebridge and Barnard Castle.

In Upper Teesdale the walk makes a U-turn at Eggleston Hall, heading down the other side of the dale, back to Barnard Castle.

Thornaby and Basleton woods are connected to each other. They are located in Thornaby, Stockton-on-Tees.

At six hectares, Thornaby Woods is a large area of ancient woodland and features trees such as oak, elm and witch. Roe deer have been seen in and around Thornaby and Basleton woods.
