The wide range of guided walks that will be provided will cover the whole area of the River Tees Rediscovered partnership. They will provide access to local heritage and help to increase understanding of unique areas.
2017 saw over 50 guided walks delivered throughout the River Tees Rediscovered area, attracting nearly 1000 walkers. Volunteer walk leaders have supported the programme throughout, even devising and leading their own walks along the Teesdale Way. The walks programme aims to help people enjoy the unique heritage of the Tees Valley through family story walks, community history walks, dawn choruses and wildlife trails. Guest walk leaders include Cleveland Industrial Archaeology Society, the Tees Heritage Trust, the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, Teesmouth Field Centre, Tees Archaeology and a range of individual experts and enthusiasts.
2018 will see a focussed campaign to walk the Teesdale Way in linear sections during the year, starting in late April, either as a guided walk or on an individual or group basis. As part of the campaign, we will celebrate the improvements made through River Tees Rediscovered and the features, wildlife and heritage sites seen along its length. Details of dates will be added to the events section and promoted on social media.
