Details about Fairy Dell
Informal park which is well landscaped with woods, lakes, bridges and picnic areas. Good access from nearby Newham Grange Country Farm. It's a tranquil place to enjoy a slice of countryside without leaving Middlesbrough.
Down at the lake there are several pairs of Moorhens that nest every year along with the numerous pairs of mallard Ducks.
Early in the morning you can witness the Grey Heron as it wades in the Lake looking for small fish or you might catch a glimpse of the Kingfisher as it flashes along the lake side whenever it gets disturbed.
Featuring fantastic sculptures by local artist Steve Iredale carved with a chainsaw.

History fans! No booking required for this lecture tomorrow by Dr Lucinda Matthews-Jones, of Liverpool John Moores University, at Teesside University tomorrow.
'When the Rev. Samuel Barnett proposed that Oxbridge men move to reside in poor districts of Britain’s great cities, he believed that their working-class counterparts suffered not only from economic disadvantages but also from a ‘poverty of life’.
His solution was a place where working men could experience beauty, truth and culture, but also as a place where the ‘two nations’ could be reconnected. Toynbee Hall was one of those places, designed to be an alternative domestic space for both the Oxbridge graduate settler and for their working-class neighbour.'
