Friends of Errington Wood

About Errington Wood

Errington Woods sits on the northern face of a hillside above the village of New Marske, surrounded by countryside. The wood is managed as Local Nature Reserve and has over 9 miles of well-maintained footpath which are popular with walkers and runners. There is a wooden adventure playground and picnic field which has expansive views over to the coast, and this is very popular with local visitors. Throughout the woodland, hidden in the undergrowth, are remainders of the past, with from Bronze barrows to the remains of Cleveland’s ironstone mining industry.

About the Friends of Errington Wood

The Friends of Errington group are a very friendly and active volunteer group. They work in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland Council to manage the woodland for wildlife and improve access for visitors. They meet up on Friday mornings to carry out woodland management work throughout the winter and footpath improvements during the summer months. They also make charcoal from the woodland using traditional techniques. New volunteers are always welcome, more details can be found on their website.
