A brand new and exclusive heritage trail booklet has been launched in Gainsborough, taking in the scenery and heritage of the small market town.
The booklet, which has been designed by the team behind the Townscape Heritage Initiative, leads visitors and locals on a 90-minute walking tour past some of the most iconic sights and attractions of the West Lindsey town.
Participants will begin at the Gainsborough Heritage Centre, before being led past landmarks such as the Old Nick Theatre, Marshalls Yard, Old County Court House, Gainsborough Old Hall and more!
Townscape Heritage Activities Co-ordinator, Theresa Workman, said that the Townscape Heritage Initiative project included promoting the heritage of the town, as well as restoring it to past glories, and that this booklet highlights its historic attractions.
“One of the aims of our project is to really get behind the town and showcase its fascinating history and heritage. Did-you-know, for instance, that an open market has been associated with the Market Place since 1281,” she said.
“These are the types of fascinating facts that can be found in our new heritage booklet – something that we hope will be just as interesting to local residents as it will be with visitors.
“These new booklets – the next part of our plan to help restore and promote the town – will eventually be found in locations all around the town; for now however, they will be available for home delivery from Easter weekend onwards, completely free of charge.”
