We can arrange leaders for the following guided walks on the subject of regeneration in Ouseburn Valley. They last 1-1 1/2 hours and cost £50 for up to 20 people. Please contact us to arrange suitable time and date for a visit.

  • 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 looks at where it might go next. Dale is the former City Council Regeneration Officer for Ouseburn, an extremely knowledgeable and well-connected guide.
  • 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. Mike is the former Heritage Officer for Ouseburn, now freelance, and an expert and fascinating guide to the heritage of the area.

For individual students seeking information for their research we can offer a one-hour interview with either the former Regeneration Officer or the Trust's Chief Officer, depending on the subject of the research.  We invite a £20 donation for this, or alternatively a student may undertake two hours voluntary work improving the Ouseburn environment, usually on a Saturday morning. Please contact us to arrange suitable time and date for an interview.
