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.
