Marking the Ways was launched in 1992 as a joint initiative of Gateshead Council and the Great North Forest. It aims to developer artistic and cultural links between local people and their environment, creating new features within the countryside, marking special places and celebrating the rich local landscape.
The programme began in Kibblesworrth, a former mining village to the south of Gateshead.
Over the years the village has experienced great changes which have removed many features from the landscape.
Artists began work in the village in 1993 often working with local people, to produce works which have become local landmarks.
Many of these can be found along the Bowes and Tanfield Railway Paths between Kibblesworth and Washingwell Country Park.
Others are dotted around the numerous walking paths in the area to the south of the Bowes Railway Path.
As photographs become available "hot links" from the map above will be added.
