    The clock sits in the middle of the main street,
    On one side there is a marble stone indicating the height of the river when it flooded in 1881.
    Above that are plaques with those involved with the railway, and war.

Yarm on Tees Off The Beaten Path

    This small town is an absolute delight. Cobblestone parking areas show the laid back atmosphere. Plenty of lovely shops to browse and people are really friendly. I have been here more than once and love each visit.

    Butterfly world opens from 10am to 4pm.
    After buying your ticket, £3.50 per adult and £3.20 for children and OAPs, or a family ticket for £13 [2 adults, 3 children, you open a door to enter a jungle environment with butterflies flitting around you, settling on flowers or even your finger.
    It is a wonderful experience being so close to these beautiful creatures. In an adjoining area are meercats, a python, and other snakes, blue tongued skinks, a tarantula, giant cockroaches, a spiked dragon and othe creatures.
    There is a giftshop with insect and reptile -based gifts on sale.

    Eaglefield is some distance from Yarm on Yarm Road, the A 67. It has a railway station, and there is a large house called Preston Hall, with a large park attached.
    This grand house also houses a museum which is open daily [except Mondays] from 10am -4pm
    There are several parks for children to play in, some very popular, others, especially for small children, are more traditional..
    The Butterfly World is another attraction. It is a mini-jungle environment and butterflies of different size and colour fly about freely, land on plants or even an outstretched hand. It is a wonderful experience being so close to these beautiful creatures. In an adjoining area are meercats, a python, and other snakes, blue tongued skinks, a tarantula, giant cockroaches, a spiked dragon and othe creatures.
    In June 2011 there was a motor show, so fairground attractions were also added to the area. The Fire brigade gave a demonstration of fighting a fire.
    It certainly is a place for families to enjoy the grounds and the children can run free in the playgrounds.
    Toilets and a cafe are available.The toilets unfortunately shut at 4pm because of vandals.

    To reach Preston Hall On outskirts of Eaglefield
    Directions: from A66 turn off at the Ingelby Barwick junction and follow the road. After Eaglesfield there is a large Parkmore Hotel. The entrance to Preston Hall is further along the road after the sign to the station .
