Heritage Trail Leaflet
The Heritage Trail Leaflet includes a map of the Heritage Trail route, Points of Interest as shown on the various Information Boards and Plaques and details of how to visit our town whether by Car, Bus/Coach or Train.

There are eight Information Boards which have been placed at significant locations around the town, they provide details and some photographs outlining the history of that particular area.
The trail starts at display board B1, which is located in front of the Civic Centre on Newcastle Road.
These information boards are numbered at their top right-hand corners as shown opposite and are depicted on the leaflet map so that you can get an overall impression of their approximate locations. The trail ends at board B8 adjacent to the Market Place/Civic Heart.
