About this walk

From the Forestry Commission website:

Coatham Wood, situated near Stockton, in-between Long Newton and Egglescliffe on Long Newton Lane, is a newly planted community woodland, with the first trees planted in 1999.A fantastic young woodland with a mix of broadleaved and conifer trees, ponds and meadows makes it a great habitat for all kinds of wildlife. Look out for Newts and dragonflies around the ponds, or you may even spot a deer grazing in one of the open areas. All 5 native species of owl have been spotted on the site.There are 2 waymarked routes and an orienteering course to help you find your way around the site or just wander along the many mown rides.The wood also has the countries first permanent Dog activity course with hurdles, tunnels and balance logs!There is a small car park just off Long-Newton Lane.Horse riding is by permit only.The dog activity trail starts from the main carpark on Long Newton Lane. You start following the yellow walk arrows and you will see the first activity the tunnels close to the carpark. The trail follows the yellow arrows up to the table top activity and then returns on the green.

    Really great. No need for keeping your dog on a lead

    Please be aware if walking your dogs in this area, please keep your eye on your dogs at all times and do not let them wander where they cannot be seen as there has been an incident of poisoned meat being left under bushes which has caused a fatality. This is very upsetting and I personally cannot understand how anyone can do this. Please stay alert to your dogs activity and report anything suspicious.

    Great short & optional long walk for the dogs. Safe to take them off leads as you can see very far into the distance. Should you need to recall.
