On a new map

Look what’s been doodled on a new map of Northumberland – at a community arts event at the Northumberland Miners Picnic Day at Woodhorn. People were invited to draw on events/ place/ memories on a big canvas which did not need to be completely geographically accurate…
This was run by www.baittime.to – a community arts project.


The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
