Coastal Plant Walk South Shields

Discover how to identify some of the rare grass and wildflower species that live in our coastal grassland habitats along The Leas, and discover why they can be found there.  

The Leas is a two and a half mile stretch of magnesian limestone cliffs and coastal grassland by South Shields. It is owned and maintained by the National Trust and stretches as far as Souter Lighthouse.   

The talk will take place at a few different locations along The Leas. Having a walk along the North East coast in July gives opportunities to see and appreciate the plant associations of this unique seascape at its best.

BOOKING ESSENTIAL. All children need to be accompanied by a parent/carer, and wear outdoor suitable clothing and footwear. 

The Trow Quarry car park is Pay and Display.
