This Trail was created by Discovery Games Ltd with funding by Keepmoat Homes in association with Public Artist and Producer Zoe Chamberlain, and with the guidance and contribution of Abbey People.

Thresholds Glass Panel Art TalismanThe trail has been produced as part of the Thresholds project. Artist Zoë Chamberlain and glass specialist Louise Watson have been working with Cambridge City Council and Keepmoat Homes to create unique artworks specifically to be incorporated into the threshold of the new homes on Barnwell Road and Latimer close in Abbey.

The specially designed glass panels for the front doors and balconies have been designed with the help of young people from the neighbourhood who have generated starting points for the finalised designs.

Symbolic talismans have often been used to mark a threshold, to ward off bad spirits or show status. People often decorate the threshold of their home to represent their individuality. It is the point where public meets private, the threshold to the rest of the community.
