Ancient woodland and wildlife haven

Sugley Dene

A semi-natural ancient woodland made up of Oak, Ash, Beech and Sycamore trees. 



A semi-natural ancient woodland made up of Oak, Ash, Beech and Sycamore trees. It is home to a variety of wildlife and woodland birds. Parts of Hadrian's Wall run through the North part of the Dene and falls within the World Heritage Site. The Hadrian’s Way national trail and cycleway runs to the south of the Dene.

Sugley Dene is popular for dog walking and bird watching.


Plan a day out

Scotswood Road

Due to the nature of Sugley Dene, access is limited and footpaths can become muddy in wet weather.

You can park in the surrounding streets close to the entrances to the Dene at  Neptune Road, Avalon Drive, Woodville Road and Ottringham Close

The perfect spot for a walk with the dog.  

Pull on the outdoor gear and take the family for a nature walk.

There aren't any public toilets within the park

The southern section of the Dene, between Neptune Road and Hadrian's Way, is closed for safety reasons, due to large landslips and to deterioration of the boardwalk. This closure is expected to be long term.

The path from Avalon Drive into the Dene at the north end has also had to be closed for safety reasons as it is being undermined by the stream and is collapsing. We are currently investigating options to repair this route.
