About This Live Project

Our project looks at the disused railway which used to run from Scarborough to Whitby. The line passes through urban, suburban and rural areas along its 22 mile length. At present it is successfully used as a recreational walking and cycling route aswell as by horse riders and even commuters as a traffic free means to get to work. 

Working with Scarborough council, Friends of the Old Railway and other groups and members of the public we hope to raise awareness of this fantastic resource, highlight areas of improvement and produce a strategic masterplan for its future development.

Crates 'n' Pallets

Just an update from the prototype team:

We are currently experimenting with the idea of using crates and pallets. These are available in a range of shapes and sizes, as shown. We envisage being able to use these basic elements to create various arrangements that can be implemented along the trail.

We plan to incorporate:
  • planting (food and flowers)
  • seating
  • shelter
  • playful elements
  • 'micro landscapes'
  • lighting
