Visit this vibrant woodland habitat, bursting with wildlife for you to discover

We are currently running a user survey for Coatham Woods. We would love to know what you use the woods for and get your feedback. Closes 11 December 2020. Thank you.

Have your say

Coatham wood, found near Stockton, is a newly planted community woodland, with the first trees planted in 1999.

The mosaic of broadleaved and conifer trees, as well as ponds and meadows makes Coatham a great habitat for all kinds of wildlife. Look out for newts and dragonflies around the ponds, or you may spot a deer grazing in one of the open areas. All 5 native species of owl have been spotted around the woodland.
