Linthorpe local nature reserve and cemetery

A peaceful oasis in Middlesbrough, Linthorpe cemetery is steeped in local history and tells the story of the development of Linthorpe and Middlesbrough.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this special site. As well as being an important burial ground, it's also a Local Nature Reserve and haven for wildlife.

The southern section of the cemetery has an almost complete canopy cover of mature trees, most of which were planted in the 19th century. The dominant species are horse chestnut and sycamore, with scattered species of pine, lime and oak. The cemetery is rich in bird life, both resident and seasonal. Regular songbirds include the nuthatch, greenfinch, dunnock and siskin. Dead standing timber with luxuriant ivy growth provides important nesting and feeding sites for tawny owls and great spotted woodpeckers.

Linthorpe Cemetery is managed by Middlesbrough Council's Bereavement Service.
