Lady BlueBell Beckons you to an adventure!

The sun shone on us, on Thursday 13th July, at Blue Bell Beck as we installed 5 AMAZING sculptures, created by Steve Iredale and funded by Tesco Bags of Help.
A big shout out to the Friends of Blue Bell Beck for all their work in the run up to the day and to the One Planet Pioneers apprentices who assisted the friends on the day. Teamwork makes the dream work!
The trail aims to attract visitors to the beck and take them on an imagination fueling adventure as the explore the site.
They are all installed in positions that aren’t immediately obvious from far away, to enhance the feeling of discovery as they are revealed as you walk around a corner or cross a bridge. You’ll also need to get up close, or even walk around them to see all they have to offer!
As you look through the gallery, wonder to yourself who each character could be and what’s their relationship with their immediate environment. Hmmmm….
These mysterious characters of the beck are waiting to be discovered but on the 11th August we’ll be officially opening the trail in style, as the Beautiful Butterflies and Marvellous Moths roadshow will be there! Check out our events page for full details.
