The Cleadon Village Atlas was a two year project aimed at bringing together local people and specialists to share knowledge and skills through a variety of workshops, field investigations, research and discussions, with the hope of promoting a greater understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of this magnificent, but potentially fragile, landscape.
The Project Team included Penny Middleton and Chris Pole from Northern Archaeological Associates Ltd, an ecologist, Ivan Dunn, and geologist Brain Young. These four were joined by an enthusiastic group of local volunteers who helped with research and field investigations. There were also various guided walks, talks and exhibitions arranged throughout the duration of the project and children from Cleadon Church of England Academy got involved with a range of targeted classes and activities. A big thank you goes out to everyone who has helped make the project such a success.
