Stewart Park

Stewart Park

Stewart Park covers approximately 120 acres and consists both of mature woodland and arboretum on the southern side, and open parkland on the northern side. Two sets of lakes provide a habitat for our water fowl.

There's also a pets corner with many types of domesticated animals, fallow deer, highland cattle, llamas and goats.

The park also features a new children's play area, trim trail, outdoor table tennis and mini golf.

Nature, heritage, orienteering and tree trails are popular with school visits.

Stewart Park houses the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum, close to the site of the cottage where Captain James Cook was born. Although all traces of the building have now disappeared, the spot is marked by a granite vase which is close to the centre of the museum.

The park hosts larger events such as the Cleveland Show every year in July (weather permitting).

Central Lodge

In 2016 Askham Bryan College was awarded money by the Heritage Lottery Fund to renovate the Central Lodge at Stewart Park. In 2017 the building opened as classrooms in which to provide the college's land-based education, such as equine and animal husbandry.

The Central Lodge was created in the 1800s by the owner of the estate, Henry Bolckow. Bolckow was Middlesbrough's first MP and mayor and was a key figure in the region's iron and steel industry. The Central Lodge is made up of many rooms including a coach house and stables, a laundry and drying room, a dairy and lodgings for the estate workers. The Lodge accompanied Marton Hall, a grand Victorian manor, however unfortunately this was demolished in the twentieth century and, due to a fire during demolition, only images and the loggia remain.

During the renovation process Askham Bryan College's Marketing Officer and Digital Heritage and Interpretation Officer captured images of the renovation process weekly. These images will be digitally archived and available for all to enjoy in January 2018.

Educations packs, information booklets and blog is available to view on the abcstewartpark website.
