We are currently putting together a set of resources for Geography A-level teachers and students using the Ouseburn Valley as a case study for place and regeneration. This will be added to over the next few months - let us know if there is anything you would like to see here.

We can also arrange leaders for the following guided walks - 1-1 1/2 hours at £50 for up to 20 people.

  • Ouseburn’s Regeneration story – Dale Bolland shows how Ouseburn has changed from 1980s to the development of mixed-use, slow-burn bottom-up regeneration of the valley over the past 30 years - and where it might go next.
  • Heritage-themed Regeneration in Ouseburn - Mike Greatbatch explains how the promotion and enhancement of the Ouseburn heritage and community history helped to change perceptions of the area and establish Ouseburn as a visitor destination and heritage hot spot.
  • Rise and Fall and Rise of Ouseburn - Liz Cowans illustrates the changing fortunes of Ouseburn's industries  since the 19th century and the lives of workers in the Valley on a guided walk down Stepney Bank and along Lime Street.
