New Cornish Website! Birds on the Branchline! Coming Soon
Welcome to Birds on the Branchline
If You Love Birds and or Scenic Train Rides
Then why not join us in an exciting “New Project” called ‘Birds on the Branchline’ where we’re looking for volunteers who can help us explore and celebrate the heritage of song birds and their habitat on the St Ives Bay line.
Please bear with us while we add the content to the site, we are working on it now and would expect to be fully running by April 3rd 2023.
Some features maybe available sooner, so check back to see on our progress.

Artconnexion is thrilled to have been awarded funding from GWR to deliver a new project called Birds on the Branchline, which will explore and celebrate the heritage of song birds and their habitat on the St Ives Bay line.
We are inviting people worldwide to share their inspiration. Our activities we will include planting seeds that can help grow wild flowers to attract new species of birds; designing and making nesting boxes and a Bird Palace (inspired by those from the Ottomona Empire) that can offer sanctuary to the birds.
Writing songs for the Song Station and poems for the Poetree; delivering award winning creative literacy/nature inspired educational workshops and a Magic Train Ride trip for young children, inspired by our best selling ‘Magic Train Ride’ sing-a-long book.
We will be also creating a limited edition of Cornish Art Fudge, featuring edible miniature works of art inspired by the project and making animations for a tiny Word Bird theatre/cinema that will be unveiled at the end of the project.
