Black Diamond - an ice-cream to top the Lemon Top?

No family day out is complete without an ice-cream

Inspired by the pioneers of the Stockton & Darlington Railway, we like to be inventive! With the help of suppliers Northern Bloc, we've designed our very own ice-cream which is exclusive to Hopetown Darlington.

Named after Black Diamond - locomotive number three on the S&DR - we think it will rival Redcar's iconic Lemon Top. Yes, we know we've set our sights extremely high! Can Black Diamond top the Lemon Top? You'll have to taste it and let us know...

Then, help us achieve our ambitious goal by sharing your pictures of our special ice-cream on social media - or true devotees can even buy Black Diamond-themed souvenirs in Hopetown Goods and Gifts!
