KIELDER VIADUCT - COMMUNITY INTERPRETATION & TRAINING
This historic viaduct is a remarkable feature of Kielder Water & Forest Park but
has never been promoted as a highlight of a visit. When the Kielder History Group
was looking for a project on which to focus, the viaduct was an obvious opportunity.
I was invited to develop and deliver the Kielder Viaduct Heritage Project for the
History Group, KWFP Development Trust and partners, supported by HLF funding. With
the help of two colleagues specialising in education, archiving and oral history,
I worked with community volunteers to catalogue the viaduct archive, establish a
learning and interpretation plan based on the findings and deliver a range of new
interpretation and learning resources for the historic monument.
At the heart of the project was a series of heritage training workshops, which were
extremely well received, and have given members of the Kielder community the skills
and confidence to develop more heritage projects in future.
