Barrel Train at Newham Grange Country Farm

A fun colourful ride is wheely proving a hit with kids at a farm attraction in Middlesbrough.

Newham Grange Country Farm's latest attraction is called a barrel train which enables children to be pulled behind a small tractor in a fun way.

The ride runs every day weather permitting at the Coulby Newham farm and is proving really popular with visitors.

Richard Buckley, from the farm which is based in Wykeham Way, said:” The barrel train is already proving a great hit with children who visit the farm.

“It’s loads of fun and the children’s faces really light up as they are pulled around the farm.”

The farm is a great day out destination for families with a wide range of animal breeds, a play and picnic area, willow maze, petting area, mini tractors, a farmhouse café and new farm shop. There is a Farm Tour and Walk at 10.30am on Friday, June 3.
