The trail celebrates the ancient village of Kilsby in honor of beloved historian Gren
A grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund enabled the installation of nine informative history boards.
A launch event will take place on Sunday, June 20.
Local historian Gren Hatton researched and recorded the history of the village, including archaeological remains and many listed and historic buildings, translating this into a series of nine interpretive panels. The content of these was completed before his death in 2017.
His work was taken over by local residents and the Kilsby Parish Council, in order to make Gren’s dream come true.
Money raised by National Lottery players has allowed Gren’s work to be showcased in a way that will allow local people of all ages to discover and appreciate Kilsby’s history. Visitors to the area will gain a better understanding of the heritage of the village and be able to contribute to the local economy.
Commenting on the award, Jenny Fisher, chair of the working group for the project, said: “ We are delighted to have received this support, thanks to the players of the National Lottery, and are confident that the project will make the people of Kilsby proud of the historical heritage of their village ”.
