The Gem Trail

Help us discover the hidden gems in Brightwater.

Over the upcoming year, Groundwork NE & CumbriaJo Howell and Emma Biggins will be working with local families to create an enchanting treasure trail and adventure guide. 

We hope to inspire people to explore and celebrate our beautiful landscape and rich heritage.

Artists Jo Howell and Emma Biggins take us on a journey from Shildon to Newton Aycliffe, showing different ways of interacting with nature and our surroundings.

This short film includes creative activities and ways you can use art to explore our landscape.
