About the event...


One of Middlesbrough’s hidden treasures, Fairy Dell has been home to some of the town’s best-known residents. Today it is a local heritage asset, habitat for wildlife and a highly-valued green space connected by Marton West Beck with the town centre and the open countryside.

Traces remaining in the landscape have been explored to reveal medieval paths and Victorian buildings. Discover more about history on your doorstep: how rural farm land became a landscaped garden; then fell into disuse until it became part of a suburban park and was adopted by The Friends of Fairy Dell.
