Clay Bank Car Park - Forestry Commission

Clay Bank Car Park - Forestry Commission

Great Broughton, Middlesbrough, TS9 7JA

Located a good distance south from Middlesbrough with trees shielding much of the town’s light pollution this is a good spot to get away from the bright lights and catch some starlight!


Clay Bank Car Park - Forestry Commission is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
