Wynyard Woodland Park (formerly known as the Castle Eden Walkway) started life as a working railway carrying freight to the ports along the River Tees. Now it provides visitors with miles of flat footpaths, numerous circular walks and a fantastic landmark play area. Housed in the old railway station and a great visitor centre.

The adjacent Thorp Wood provides an interesting diversion and opportunities for circular walks with magnificent vies over Tees Valley towards Roseberry Topping - a local landmark.
