County Durham Sport have created a story map – a visual way to display local insight to help us better understand the people and places of County Durham.

Navigating through the map, you will be able to explore local data – not just on physical activity but on all of the wider factors which have an impact on how active we are. Our age, health, gender, ethnicity, and where we live all have an impact on how likely we are to be physically active.

The map will also show you information about important local assets, like green spaces and foot paths.
