Activity 8 – Mosaic trail

A visible record of history along the High Street

This Activity has an ambitious aim.   It plans to bring together local historical expertise, local secondary school children, local craft skills and local businesses to illustrate history and assist tourism in the form of a Mosaic trail.

We intend to develop the trail through the village, incorporating businesses and premises of historical significance.   We will work with students at Freeborough Academy, Skelton Youth Club members and the Skelton History Group, together with property owners, to identify the appropriate buildings.   Designs will be created based on the history of the buildings involved.   Mosaics will then be developed with local artists and placed with the help of the school students. See below for a sample of the latest designs.

This Activity is specifically supported by our partner, the Skelton & Brotton Parish Council.
