North Tees Trail

The North Tees Trail is seeking to create a new access route linking Port Clarence to North Gare as part of the England Coastal Path.  The new path will enable people to walk to RSPB Saltholme, Greatham Creek and North Gare, providing fantastic opportunities for an exploration of an area rich in nature conservation and industrial heritage, located within the boundaries of the area known as the North Tees Natural Network (NTNN). Construction will be completed soon, allowing visitors to complete the entire route!

Guided Walks

This project provides a series of guided walks through the varying and fascinating landscapes along the River, many of which are unique to the Tees Valley. They engage participants in local heritage whilst raising awareness of the wider landscape through linking with the industry and the wider river corridor. The wide range of guided walks offered covers the whole area of the River Tees Rediscovered partnership and provides an excellent means by which to explore the landscape of the River Tees.
