Slingsby Village Trail

Following requests, the Local History Group is reprinting the illustrated Village Trail which proved to be very popular last year. All 500 copies disappeared rapidly!

It will be available from the end of May, at the latest. As this year there is no grant to fund the printing this time, a £1 per copy will be charged. This will enable the group  to make a small profit towards the goal of buying a secure archive cabinet to store local history information in the church for current and future generations of local residents to use.

The trail will be available from the Village Shop and on the caravan sites. For mail orders, contact Margaret on 01653 697010, email [email protected] The post and packing charge is £1 (1-3 leaflets) or £2 (4-8 leaflets).
