Boro Becks Team

Walkers will get a glimpse into the fascinating history of Middlesbrough and its surrounding area on two guided walks.

The walks are being organised by the Boro Becks Team and are being held to coincide with Local History Month.

The first walk is eight miles long and takes place on Sunday, May 15. It starts at 10.30am outside the Pavilion in Thorntree Park and follows the Tees Link path up Spencer Beck to the Eston Hills.

Archaeologist Steve Sherlock will guide the group around some of the remains of the ironstone mines which built modern Middlesbrough.

Due to limited on-street parking those planning to travel by car should meet at 10am in the Stewart Park car park for a minibus ride to Thorntree Park. A minibus will take walkers from Eston to Thorntree and Stewart Park at the end of the walk. Booking is essential.

On Thursday, May 26, the Boro Becks Team will lead a five mile circular walk to look at the stories behind two of the town’s most beautiful parklands at Ormesby Hall and Stewart Park. Please meet at 10am at the Southlands Centre.

Please bring food and a drink and wear appropriate outdoor clothing and walking boots.
