Busy Summer for Boroughbridge.
After the very successful Easter Walking Festival when over 300 walkers took part, The Boroughbridge Striders long distance walking group was launched.
In July Boroughbridge joined with the local Historical Society to present a display at the The Boroughbridge Secret Gardens Day. Here they were able to survey the local community to find out if a regular Saturday walk of 6/8 miles would be of interest.
August saw the launch of the Aldborough Artarch soundmarks trail of the exploration and Archeology of the Roman Town of Aldborough two miles from Boroughbridge. Created by Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby and Rob St John a sound specialist. It explores the Roman Excavations which have taken place over the last few years via downloadable artwork, commentary and recorded sounds of the workings from the deep underground drilling cores taken to the sounds of the rain falling on Himalayan Balsam when stopping at certain points along the trail.
