A NEW free trail map for children about horrible facts in Trowbridge’s history is being launched on Friday (July 28).

Trowbridge Town Council will be giving out these maps from 10 am on the day at Leyker’s Coffee Central in White Hart Yard. Specially-themed cakes and drinks for the event will be available to buy from Leyker’s, and children will be able to take a tour of the trail from 1030 am, accompanied by a member of staff from the Museum.

“This is something really exciting. The horrible history side of things is always really popular with children and I hope the trail and map will be a big hit,” said the Council’s Customer Service Manager, Aby Cooper.

Copies of the map will be available from Trowbridge Information Centre or it can be downloaded here.
