Wynyard Woodland Park started life as a working railway carrying freight to the ports along the River Tees.

That former railway line now offers an excellent route for walking and cycling, with linking footpaths enabling visitors to wider park including Thorpe Wood Local Nature Reserve, Tilery and Brierley Woods and the splendid Pickard Meadows (a huge, newly established wildflower meadow). 

The former station house now houses an excellent café, and nearby there’s a fantastic, adventure play area in a stunning woodland setting. The park is also home to a planetarium and observatory, managed by the Cleveland and Darlington Astronomical Society (CaDAS). For more information including details of planned events, please visit the CaDAS website.

Vehicle barriers on the Castle Eden Walkway at Wynyard Woodland Park are there to deter motorbikes and horses. Each one is Sustran cycle pass approved. However if wheelchair users are unable to fit through the barrier there is a standard RADAR padlock on the vehicle barrier. A RADAR padlock is fitted to disabled toilets so anyone registered disabled should have access. A RADAR padlock is usually bright red.



Woodland Park is near the village of Thorpe Thewles. The park can be entered at either end, with access from the A177 and A689. Follow the brown tourist signs.

Please note some signs may refer to the Woodland Park as the Castle Eden Walkway.
