Heritage Walks

At Straw Bear 2018, Whittlesey Museum held a “Get Active” giveaway in which every museum visitor received a pack containing a museum branded pedometer and leaflets. The following leaflets describing heritage themed walks around Whittlesey town centre were included in the packs:

Mud Walls Walk LeafletCCF-grant-logo-lg

Whittlesey In Old Photos Walk Leaflet

Maureen Watson’s Ghost Walk Leaflet

Whittlesey Mini Guide Leaflet

The first three leaflets were produced and printed by Whittlesey Museum using funding from the Dulverton Trust Fund, a charity managed through the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.  The fourth leaflet was reprinted for the promotion by Visit Cambridgeshire Fens, usually being digital-only. The pack also included leaflets advertising the Fenland Five Museums Group and the Whittlesey Museum events calendar for 2018.

The heritage walks project had several purposes – to promote local heritage, to encourage local people to be active, to strengthen partnerships between the museum and other local bodies and to advertise the museum.
