Fairy Dell is a wooded beck and park on the borders of Marton and Coulby Newham on the southern edge of Middlesbrough. The area is a mix of natural woodland, laid out parkland, ornamental lake and flood defence lakes.
The friends group have been fortunate to attract funding for events in the dell and park. There have been several Dell Festivals where we have been joined by other agencies to promote the use of the park and dell. Click the link above.
A growing team of volunteers regularly work in the dell to improve the amenity. We have been fortunate to be joined by volunteers from several sources and by staff and students for local colleges. Click the link below to see some of the work we have undertaken.
One of the greatest pleasures we have is being involved with the young people from the local schools. Please take a look at some of the recent activities we have enjoyed with our helpers.
We are satisfied! It IS a Medieval Trod (path).
A series of trenches and digs around the park during May 2014 confirmed it.

We're growing again! Fingers crossed that it stays healthy....
