Walbottle & Throckley Dene
On the western edge of Newcastle, Walbottle & Throckley Dene’s leafy woodland is a haven for native wildlife.
Popular with walkers, cyclists, horse riders and runners, the Dene is beautiful at any time of year. Enjoy the spring flowers, the shady canopy in full summer, the beauty of an autumnal day or the crisp starkness of winter – there’s always something of wonder.
The main path through the Dene is a public bridleway and used by lots of active people. It’s great for clearing the cobwebs and weekend adventures in the woods.
