Add Ryton Willows Local Nature Reserve to your Itinerary


Picturesque riverside land with woodland, grassland and ponds. Adjacent to attractive historic village.
The beech trees on the slope of Middle Wood are thought to be the tallest in Gateshead and are an ideal home for nuthatch, great spotted woodpecker and tawny owl. Bluebell, lesser celandine and other flowers can be seen growing in the spring.

Flowers such as harebell and common sorrel can be found growing on the dry sandy soil of the grassland, where meadow brown and small copper butterflies fly on sunny summer days. Birds such as linnet and yellow hammer breed in the gorse.
