An archaeologist will lead a fascinating eight mile walk to discover the hidden history of the Eston Hills.

The walk, organised by the Boro Becks team, takes place on Sunday, October 16 and will be led by archaeologist Dr Steve Sherlock.

The route follows the Tees Link path up Spencer Beck to Flatts Lane Country Park from which point walkers hit the hills, finishing at the Cross Keys pub to pick up the minibus and return to the start.

Chris Corbett, Community Outreach Officer, said: “Eston Hills has a wealth of prehistory to discover, most of which is difficult to spot.

“Dr Sherlock’s expertise will reveal just how long people have been living in this outstanding landscape and the subtle signs they left behind.”

If you are travelling by car meet in Stewart Park car park at 10am for a lift to the start of the walk at Thorntree Park at 10.30am. The minibus will pick walkers up from the Cross Keys pub at 3pm.

The walk involves slopes and rough country paths as well as covering high ground where the weather can change quickly.

Walkers are advised to come well prepared with a packed lunch, hot drinks, sturdy, supportive footwear and warm, waterproof clothing.
