Create a Sign for Walk the Line

Ref: C2525033

Enjoy being creative and love the outdoors? Why not come along and create a waymarker sign to be used to guide walkers around the Bowes Railway Heritage Trail? We’ll be showing you step by step how to make a simple mosaic arrow, ( with your own personal touch), which will be displayed on the trail. Create your own little piece of history! As part of the day you’ll get the chance to take part in a guided walk around the trail (optional) and at the end of the day you can have your photograph taken with your finished sign. Bring a packed lunch or enjoy a snack from the Bowes tearoom.
