Shenstone Heritage Trails
We’re delighted to announce that after months of hard work the Shenstone Heritage Trails are now available.
The Shenstone Heritage Trails are the brainchild of a small group of committed local historians who came together to share their fascination with village history. What better way to do this than to give people an opportunity to immerse themselves in that history by following a heritage trail in which there are many stories to be told, buildings to see and the past to imagine.
The trails are available in the library, or you can download them from this website.
