Flatts Lane Country Park
Flatts Lane, Normanby, Middlesbrough, TS6 0NN
This is a good place to begin exploring the countryside south of Normanby, but is a 45 minute walk (just over 2 miles) up to the top of Ormesby Bank and then over the hill and through the woods. The visitor centre has an exhibition room, where you can learn more about the history and the wildlife of the country park or have a go at solving one of the puzzles. Rangers are on hand to provide further information. Other facilities here include toilets and a first-aid point. There is also a small shop selling refreshments and gifts.

Come and explore the Land of Iron Walks in the North York Moors
There are ten circular walks from stations with close connections to the Ironstone mining era of the late 1800s. Try the train down the Esk Valley and from Great Ayton to Grosmont, each station tells a story and shows a map with a circular walk. The information boards were funded by the North York Moors National Park's Land of Iron Team and you can find out more about this amazing project here. There is also a permanent exhibition at the Moors Centre, Danby, which is a 20 minute walk from the station.
