Stainton Quarry straddles Stainton Beck, between the villages of Stainton and Thornton in Middlesbrough. A footbridge joins it to Kell Gate Green on the other side of the beck. These countryside sites provide three hectares of community-run open green space for local people.
You can enjoy views over the open countryside by following a circular footpath that snakes through woodland and meadow in Stainton Quarry. Middlesbrough Wildspace run regular family wildlife events that take place throughout the year. Kell Gate Green is a venue for village events and informal recreation.
