This Easter, enjoy a stroll through the Deer Park in Bishop Auckland and see if you can spot our woodland animals hidden amongst the trees. First, pick up a trail leaflet from the Mining Art Gallery, filled with clues to help you navigate your way around the park.

The outdoor trail was created by our team, who chose characters based on the Park’s natural inhabitants and used their knowledge of the 200 acre park to identify suitable hiding places.

Their characters were brought to life by Pod resident, Gillian Gamble, whose beautiful illustrations will soon feature in a set of family materials, used across our projects. The illustrations were then carved into wood by local engravers, The Three Peaks Company, which has recently begun selling its range of engraved products in the shop at No.42.

Return your completed trail to the Mining Art Gallery to collect an Easter treat!

£2 per trail leaflet or free with family entry to the Mining Art Gallery/drop-in.

We advise visiting families to wear wellies or suitable outdoor footwear.
