The Millennium Heritage Trail

View Earlsdon Heritage Trail in a larger map

The Millennium Heritage Trail was established in 2000 to mark the arrival of that year. A local historian, the late Mary Montes, was invited to choose the sites that she felt were significant to the development of Earlsdon. The result is commemorated by a series of plaques placed at or near to each of the sites, and a guide book which is available from a number of outlets in Earlsdon. Below, we have summarised this guide book and we dedicate this site to Mary's memory.
