All in Tactile

Engaging Interpretation at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare

The latest interpretation at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare has built on the existing interpretation we installed last year and includes audio, visual, smell and touch interpretation. This all adds to the mix of engaging activities that the education team run at the centre to help visitors understand and feel fully engage with their work of helping animal welfare.

The centrepiece of the park is Northumberlandia, a stunning human landform sculpture of a reclining lady. Made of 1.5 million tonnes of rock, clay and soil, she is 100 feet high and a quarter of a mile long. Far from being a rigid manicured art form Northumberlandia is a living part of the countryside that will mature over time and change with the seasons. What you see when you visit is only the start of something that will evolve through generations.
