Bella (2020)

Meet Bella. Bella is a vlogger.

She has been vlogging about the Penrith Winter Droving Trail.

She has found all ten clues…

Bella is an interactive digital trail that begins opposite the railway station in Penrith, Cumbria, and takes you on a journey around the town. There are 10 clues to find…

When you follow the Penrith Winter Droving trail you will walk in the footsteps of 5000 years of travellers through Penrith and Eden Valley. It will take you to unimaginable places from ancient enclosures to secret caves. You will march on Roman roads and walk along the market lanes where cattle were brought for centuries.

Bella was created in autumn 2020, when the usual Winter Droving festival had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Bella is a way of keeping the festival spirit alive.
