Take a Walk on the Wild Side at Greenabella Marsh; Greenabella Marsh Is One of the Most Important Wildlife Habitats in the Tees Valley. It Lies Only a Short Distance from Teesside's Industrial Heartland. but Visit This Beautiful Site and You'll Feel a Million Miles Away from the Hustle and Bustle of Everyday Life


Greenabella Marsh is not only a haven for wildlife but a perfect place for local families to relax and enjoy the delights of Mother Nature. To find out more about this special place, we caught up with Brian Bennett - a man who has visited the marsh nearly every week for the past eight years.

A lovely combination "You only have to walk for a few minutes onto Greenabella Marsh and it's hard to imagine that you are anywhere near an industrial landscape", says Brian Bennett.

Brian is an Environment Manager at Huntsman Pigments' Greatham Works. Greenabella Marsh lies on the company's land, close to the Greatham site. Brian's job sees him walking the marsh on a weekly basis - keeping an eye on the condition of this wildlife habitat and on the paths that have been created so that people can visit and enjoy nature.

"Greenabella Marsh is a lovely combination of grassland and reed beds that stretches to a sea wall. It's a very nice place to walk and relax. If you keep your eyes peeled, you'll catch sight of some wonderful wildlife such as colourful dragonflies flitting above the ponds.

"The marsh changes through the seasons so there's always something new to take in. In the summer, the bulrushes grow very quickly and very tall. In the winter the marsh provides a stopover for migrant birds", says Brian.

Greenabella Marsh is a shining example of how Huntsman works hard on the environmental front - not only to minimise the impact of its operations on people and the environment but to positively encourage biodiversity.

Commitment Says Brian: "Huntsman has a long-standing commitment to the environment and support of the wildlife that flourishes on Greenabella Marsh". Greatham Works has recently won several environmental awards including the prestigious Chemical Industries Association EDF Low Energy Award in 2011.

"The site has also run many environmental initiatives on and around Greenabella Marsh over the last 20 years to promote healthy habitats for birds and other wildlife species.
