Did you know that almost two thirds of Gateshead is rural?
We have four categories with four great prizes:
Landscape - We have some stunning views in Rural Gateshead, from the ancient Ousbrough Wood in the Beamish Valley, to the quiet beauty of Ryton Willows on the Keelmans Way, to the breath-taking Nine Arches Viaduct and the endless walks in Chopwell Woods.
Enjoying the Outdoors - There is so much to do and see, from riding the trails at one of the Forestry Commissions 'Big 6' at Chopwell Woods, to cycling one of the two national cycle networks that run through Gateshead, to enjoying our country parks with the kids, or letting your dog splash in the River Derwent as it winds its way towards the Tyne.
Nature and Wildlife - Can you find any fun fungi, any exotic Waxwings or our beautiful Red Kites? Maybe you could even spot a roe deer at Thornley hide?
Youth (Under 16) - With so much to do and see, from the activities at Gibside, to catching the train at the Tanfield Railway and going wild in the woods we'd love to see what our young people love best about Gateshead's great outdoors.
