Trails and Tribulations

Groundwork North East has created a variety of trails to interpret the geology and the built environment, using a range of techniques and technologies. We have created a sensory rock trail in Mowbray Park, Sunderland for all to appreciate. We are using the trails to signpost visitors to nature reserves and geological wonders of the Limestone Landscapes.

The Trails and Tribulations Project has been working with community groups to research and establish five routes. We have developed trails and leaflets linking key geological sites.
