Parish Heritage Walks 150.jpg

The countryside is full of footprints: every generation has left them behind. Some are obvious, most are not, they quickly fade and soon completely disappear. On a Parish Heritage Walk you will walk in the surviving footprints and discover the stories that go with them.

All Parish Heritage Walks start with a visit to the parish church where you can switch on a Stories from the Stones Listening Post to unlock the story of the church and its parish before following that story out into the parish.

Each Parish Heritage Walk comes with an accompanying audio. These will shortly be available as downloads in mp3 format. You can buy them today from the shop in CD format



HERE'S WHAT TO DO.
Scroll below and choose a parish to explore. Go to the Destinations gazetter to find out more about the parish. Make your choice.
