In the 18th century, the Saltburn Valley echoed to the nocturnal sounds of local smuggling gangs grateful for the network of tracks through the densely wooded gills. Today, the valley gardens have lost none of their appeal. The colourful formal displays complement the steep grassy banks which are cut to support a rich diversity of wild flowers. Summer sees the miniature railway bringing people up from the sea to the gardens, Woodland Centre and Woodsend Tearooms and the valley plays host to theatre events, festivals and guided walks. A permanent orienteering course helps people of all abilities explore the gardens from a different angle.
