Billingham Beck Valley Country Park

With its colourful meadows, ponds, marsh and woodland, Billingham Beck Valley is one of Stockton Borough’s most interesting areas of countryside. This wetland provides a home for plants and animals, which are beginning to disappear from our countryside, as wetlands are being drained.

Designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 1992, this valuable pocket of countryside has been preserved as a haven for wildlife and a place where people can explore, enjoy and learn about the countryside.

The Ranger Service at Billingham Beck Valley Country Park lead themed school groups including pond dipping and mini beasting, habitats and how plants and animals live.

Other regular activities include a range of practical conservation work and environmental monitoring of flora and fauna across the site with the resident wildlife expert.
