Buildings with Stories

10am – 12.30pm

Book now for this special guided walk devised by the Wilderspin National School and the Ropewalk as part of their Historic Barton project.

This family trail is designed to engage children with some of the town’s historic buildings and show the grownups how to use the new Historic Barton heritage trail phone app.

It starts at the Wilderspin National School and ends at the Ropewalk – lasting about two hours. There are surprises at each of the buildings where we stop – including historical characters, a secret garden and short stories which bring the past to life.

All you need is good footwear, a sense of adventure and an appetite for juice and biscuits at the end of the trail when we’ll show you how to download and use the phone app.

FREE

Telephone (01652) 635172 to book.
