The Sleeper Bed Project

A collaboration between Leadgate Task Force, Gibside NT Green Academies Project and Sustrans North East

Phase 1 was the renovation of the area, this task involved clearing the undergrowth, re-laying/replacing the railway sleepers, digging over the ground, and laying a membrane to suppress weed growth.

Phase 2 concentrated on planning the layout and plants to be used. The planning meeting, held in the Eden Miners Centre, was open to all interested parties.

Phase 3 will be the planting up of the beds, this work will be done by Gibside NT Green Academies Project (GAP).
