Local walks

Explore local ancient woodlands this winter. Free expert led walks by Tees Valley Wildlife Trust.

The Tees Valley Wildlife Trust will be running a guided walk to explore the winter features of Hagg Wood, Moorsholm. Hagg Wood is a Woodland Trust Reserve accessed by following the route of an ancient trod and part of a larger complex of wildlife rich ancient semi natural woodland. In winter the woods are laid bare allowing the shapes of the trees and other features to become more apparent. Our expert will point out interesting aspects of the woodland plants and explore evidence for the human influence on the woodlands seen today. Participants will be encouraged to take photos and make sketches to help create a collective digital diary of the wood.

This winter walk is part of a larger programme, funded by National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, to explore the seasonal changes of the woods throughout a year. For more information on the programme and details of other woodland walks visit:

Details: Wednesday 8th February 10am to 1.00pm. Meet outside the former Toad Hall Arms, Moorsholm

To register your interest in the walk please call 01287 636382 or email Please wear warm clothes and footwear suitable for visiting woodlands in winter. Bring a drink and a snack and dont forget your camera or drawing materials!
