South Molton Community Trail: a new resource for locals to make new discoveries about the town and an interactive map for visitors to the area, to help them understand what makes this area unique.
Over the course of 18 months, and as part of a major project involving almost 200 children across North Devon the pupils have investigated the heritage of the Beaford Archive to create themes such as ‘landscape’, ‘river’, and ‘trade’ for walkers to explore through a map and information pack presenting a selection of 10,000 newly digitised, never before seen, photographs of South Molton.
This is an exhibition showcasing the development of this trail, the photos that inspired it, and artworks and writing created by the children from South Molton Community Primary School, together with a large scale 3D sculpture designed and created with the Fab Lab at Libraries Unlimited.
These trails have been created with the help of Devon Wildlife Trust and 6 artists in residence, and through funding from supporters including the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
