Boro Becks Team

People are being invited to join a springtime ramble in Middlesbrough with the Boro Becks team.

The ramble takes place from 10am to 12 noon on Thursday, April 26 and follows a four mile circular along paths on Newham and Marton West Becks.

Chris Corbett, Community Outreach Officer, said “This circular walk takes you through a variety of habitats from the open grassland of Sandy Flatts to the lovely wooded banksides of Marton West Beck where kingfishers have been spotted.

“It’s incredible to think you are within walking distance of the town centre when you hear nothing but birdsong and the waters of the beck.”

Where to meet and further information

Meeting point is outside the visitor centre at Nature’s World on Ladgate Lane.

Sturdy shoes with good grip are essential as some paths are steep and muddy and bring a snack and drink.

For more information on how to get involved, visit the Boro Becks Facebook page or get in touch via Twitter at @borobecksteam, by calling 01642 515618 or by email at
