The ‘Creepy Crawl’ Trail at Derwent Reservoir

Weird and wonderful bug designs painted at Derwent Waterside Park

The Trust’s Heart of Durham Project works in Partnership with Northumbrian Water and over the summer holidays the project will be helping out with a range of crafty summer activities every Wednesday until the end of August at Derwent Waterside Park. These are free sessions open to everyone.

On Wednesday 31st July the activity was painting beetle stones, these will be used for an installation along a section of the new ‘Creepy Crawl’ trail which follows the multi-user path from Millshield’s picnic site to the Waterside Park.

The North Pennines AONB have been instrumental in producing this leaflet but the Heart of Durham Project has created several installations for the ‘Creepy Crawl’ trail, starting with the juniper plantation at Millshield.
