A Journey Through Teesdale
This project formed part of the Castle and Scar Top Programme. It complemented the overall proposals for Scar Top, with specific reference to the need to improve paths to and through the area, and move the Mini Golf course. The project involved a total renovation of the course. The facility was popular and attracted people on to Scar Top but looked tired. It presented an opportunity to make the whole experience more interesting and educational by including a Teesdale landmark or scene on each of the 9 holes, thereby effectively each round being a ‘Journey through Teesdale’, with specific reference to Barnard Castle. This cultural and heritage approach to the course was connected to the actual landmarks and history, and hopefully provides additional attractions, learning for the visitor, economy and all concerned.
This project is now complete
