Our interactive digital trail

During a time of conflict, thieves coveted one of Ushaw’s greatest treasures.

In order to keep the treasure safe for posterity we hid it in our Ornamental Gardens. That’s where you come in — can you find our hidden treasure?

Here’s your chance to uncover some of Ushaw’s greatest artefacts and discover more about our history as you are guided around the formal gardens and grounds.

You’ll come across some interesting characters along the way who’ll point you in the right direction. The Digital Art Trail features 10 locations. Each location introduces an interactive element, including augmented reality, video and image sliders, for you to explore and enjoy.

Let the treasure hunt begin!
