Next upcoming date





Axbridge Heritage Trail Launch

Seed has commissioned the Axbridge Heritage Trail Launch, a construction of a notice board and artwork for the project including the the Heritage Trail leaflets for the local community to enjoy.

2.30pm on Sunday 12th June is the Axbridge Heritage trail launch by the mayor outside the Museum. 

Over the next month you will notice blue plaques arriving on forty historic buildings in Axbridge. QR codes will be in windows which can be scanned with a smart camera phone or devise taking you to more details on the history of the properties or the people who lived in them.

Do you know where the Tozer family lived?
The Vicar who went on to write ghost stories?
Just a few of the interesting things on the trail.

The project has been developed by a subgroup of the Axbridge Action Group to showcase the beautiful medieval town of Axbridge.

The Heritage Trail will feature approximately 40 historic buildings and places of interest.  A website has been created with QR codes at various points of interest.  By accessing a QR code through your phone or iPad you will be directed to the website where you can read the history of a building or area, see photos from the past and some short videos.
A local historian from the Axbridge Museum has worked with the Axbridge Action Group to identify and research the history of the properties; which will give people a chance to learn more about their properties and the town they live in, as well as being able to learn how to research the past.

The childrens trail was developed last year and has been successful for children and their parents to learn and visit the town.  A Geocache trail is now being developed and will be launched shortly.
