Shildon station was adopted by New Shildon Residents Association, who work with local organisations to bring life and fun to the station.

They worked hard to maintain the beautiful planters which were painted by children from Timothy Hackworth School. And over the past few years they have worked with Greenfield Arts in Newton Aycliffe to create the art installations.

Shildon in Motion’ brings together Shildon’s past and celebrated its future through vibrant bold graphics.

and ‘We are here’ used creativity and imagination to find visual ways to celebrate and share the love of the railway in Shildon. You can find out more about this project on the project site.

We’re currently looking for a new adopter for Shildon so if you are interested please get in touch.
