Gamesley Woodlands Mosaic Trail Launch

Gamesley-webTomorrow morning from 11.00am until 1pm, High Peak Community Arts are hosting the unveiling and celebration of the Gamesley Woodland Mosaic project.

The mosaic's have been created by Project eARTh participants, with artist Debra Tracey.

The event will take place in the relatively recently named 'Gamesley Woodlands' which those longer in the tooth will know better as the former Mottram Rail Yard from the days when Hadfield was not the end of the line but just a stopping point on the way to the Sheffield via the Woodhead.

The 'Gamesley Woodland' forms part of the route for the Trans Pennine Trail, and although called the 'Gamesley Woodlands' it is currently not actually accessible from 'Gamesley' pending the completion of the missing stretch from the former level crossing under the arches to Simmondley.

The event tomorrow will see participants take a short stroll through the woods to see the mosaic artwork and then enjoy some refreshments and a display of the projects progression. To join in meet at the entrance to Gamesley Woodlands, just off Long Lane, between Charlesworth and Broadbottom at just before 11am! The event is free and open to all.

Unfortunately as flagged by a whole host of folks, as detailed by Derbyshire Police - one of the mosaics is currently missing, as it was stolen shortly after installation - Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Adam Harrison on 101, quoting crime number 14651/15, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 FREE.
