Castle Eden and its adjoining dene is one of the most interesting and picturesque parts of Durham. A Site of Special Scientific Interest, it is home to an extraordinary variety of birds, more than 450 species of plants, and some of our favourite mammals, such as roe deer and fox.
At 3.5 miles (5.6km) long it covers 221 hectares of woodland and lowland grassland and is the largest of a series of valleys which run down to the coast between Sunderland and Hartlepool, reaching the sea at Denemouth.
