Enjoy the Beauty of a Woodland Walk to Celebrate National Tree Week
Given the current Covid restrictions Middleton-in-Teesdale Walkers Are Welcome has decided, rather than organising a guided walk, to mark The Tree Council’s National Tree Week by adding an additional woodland walk to their website so that people can still enjoy the beauty of a woodland walk this week or any other. The walk, ‘King’s Walk and Snaisgill Loop’ is a gentle 2.7-mile chance to explore the beautiful Hudeshope Woods in Middleton-in-Teesdale. This is an area of mixed woodland largely made up of Beech, Ash, Sycamore, Oak, Scots Pines, and Larch and at various times of the year of an array of wildflowers such as celandines, dog’s mercury, ransoms, orchids, water avens, and primroses. In addition birds such as ring ouzels, tree creepers, dippers and heron can often be seen.
