Relaunch of Retford Heritage Trail

by | 16 December 2023 | Heritage, Retford

On Tuesday 17th October Chair of Bassetlaw District Council, Councillor Deborah Merryweather, officiated at the Retford Heritage Trail Relaunch at Bassetlaw Museum.

In her speech, Deborah said: “I think that it’s important that we preserve the history and rich heritage of our region, and it’s wonderful to see that the town of Retford has benefited from the creation of such a beautifully-written and illustrated guidebook.

“I’d like to extend a particular thank you to Retford Civic Society on behalf of BDC. A special thanks goes out to Andy Massey, who created the beautiful illustrations, Burgess Design and Print, who printed the guide with excellence and Bassetlaw Museum, which hosted today’s relaunch.”

The guide can be found at the Bassetlaw Museum, the Denman Library and the Retford Arts Hub. Also now available at these venues is the recently-updated and reprinted ‘Hunt Your Retford Town Heritage’ leaflet, which is the abbreviated cartoon version of the town trail, designed by Frank Canning for Retford Civic Society.
