The Alston Emery Art Trail

Residents and visitors will be able to walk in the footsteps of acclaimed borough artist Alston Emery along a one mile, town centre route.

The Alston Emery Art Trail, devised by Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, aims to guide walkers from the house owned by Alston to various locations where he painted in the decades before his death in 1996.

In addition to standing in the same spot as the great watercolourist, avid art fans will walk past historic town centre buildings, art galleries, coffee shops and Newcastle’s independent traders. The one-hour walk ends at the Brampton Museum and Art Gallery where the five original paintings from the walk can be seen by arrangement.

There are parking locations on the map, the art trail and images of Alston’s watercolours. It will display on an electronic device such as a mobile phone or tablet in high definition.

The Alston Emery Art Trail is available here

Picture shows The Alston Emery Art Trail Liverpool Road, 1976 and Laura Ashley shop, 1990-1991.
