About the project

 

There are four gates decorated with flora and fauna in situ either end of a pathway that provides access to the Woodland Centre, the garden and the woodlands. These 4 metres high gates were built by a local artist in the 1990s and used to signify the joining up of the Tees valley wide Cleveland Forest. Opened by David Bellamy these magnificent gates have now lost their function with the demise of the Cleveland forest plan, and we want to bring them back into public awareness with this project. The artist will involve local families in workshops re the return of the gates, and this will help Saltburn Friends of the Valley to develop its role in the community.
