England Coast Path in Stockton-on-Tees

After seven years of planning and development, five phases of construction, and over £800,000 of external funds raised, the Stockton section of the England Coast Path was officially opened in September.

The new stretch, between Newport Bridge and North Gare in Hartlepool, is 10 miles long. The section between Transporter Bridge and Greatham Creek has created over 2.5 miles of brand new access through a previously inaccessible area, passing through Teesmouth National Nature Reserve and the industrial landscape of Seal Sands.

The Stockton section links to the already-open stretches of the England Coast Path to the north (North Gare to South Bents) and south (Filey Brigg to Newport Bridge). When complete the England Coast Path will be 2,795 miles long.
