Middlesbrough’s becks are an important part of the town’s life, offering welcome corridors of open space for local residents. They are also home to an array of wildlife, including the water vole, one of the UK’s most endangered species.
In partnership with Middlesbrough Council and the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, and Middlesbrough Football Club, we've helped to establish a Boro Becks project.
Funding has been awarded by the Big Lottery as part of the Access to Nature grants programme administered by Natural England.
The Boro Becks project is all about getting people involved in the becks through events and activities, training, practical task days and environmental and access improvements.
