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.

Yesterday we had our final presentation which although apparently was quite long went well. To start the presentation off we did a video which accompanied the BBC York report aired on November 6th.

To launch the website and podcast, which went online on the 7th of November a number of carrots were planted in planters throughout Scarborough city centre. Attached to the carrots was an envelope with details of the site and inside the recipe book we have produced, seeds and a copy of the brochure.

The website address is: www.thecindertrack.co.uk and has the recipe book, podcast, origami instructions for turning the brochure once finished with into a seed starter pot, information of the lines history and upcoming event info.

Exhibition Under Woodlands Ravine Bridge

Wow. An amazing day was had yesterday as the team held an exhibition yesterday undr Woodlands Ravine Bridge. We were there showing our proposals and get feedback from the local residents and users of the track. The bleak weather and low temperatures were offputting but once we had set up a steady stream of visitors were drawn to the exhibition, keen to see our proposals and sample the Nettle soup on offer. We had great feedback on the project and created a lot of interest in the track's future, with the local radio and newspaper both present to record local reactions the exhibition was a success.
