Stockton is a great place to walk. Whether it’s through one of our many towns or beautiful countryside, you will find some great places to go. It is also the ideal way for people to get active.

 

Walking Maps

Stockton has a wonderful network of routes for walking, whether you want to get to the local shops, walk to school, or enjoy some fabulous parks and countryside. Maps and leaflets for a whole host of walks can be viewed below:

Teesdale Way

The Teesdale Way is a wonderful 90-mile walking trail following the course of the River Tees from the North Pennines to Teesmouth. The section of the route running through the Borough is full of contrast, featuring the peaceful countryside upstream of Yarm, the stunning nature reserves of the Tees Heritage Park and a fantastic series of bridges including Yarm, Victoria, Infinity, Newport, and the Transporter. Using the Borough’s Walking and Cycling Maps you can plan all kinds of circular walks, setting out along different sections of the Teesdale Way and returning via other paths.

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.
