News - Tourist trail plan for Conisbrough

Members of a Conisbrough Church are starting a tourist trail in the town to highlight aspects of cultural interest past and present.

Conisbrough Baptist Chapel’s trail will showcase the history of Conisbrough, along a track which will include almost every part of the village.

The trail will point out the stories connected to local people, and places from the past and the present. Baptist Minister, Ian Wright said: “The Baptist Chapel is very proud to be involved at such a level with the project,

“We live in an area of amazing historical interest. We are so proud to be part of this. You may be living just a short walk away from something of outstanding local interest and not know.

“Following the completion of this project it will give the community a greater love of the place they call home”.

The trail will include obvious spots such as the castle grounds and the Holy Well and lesser known points of interest such as the Oval.

It is intended to involve the whole of the community, by asking anyone with suggestions to contact the organisers, with either memories, or facts regarding the area.

If anyone has pictures or special memories, of a particular area, or have suggestions that would be of interest to villagers and visitors, contact Jon Sutton on 07939 548285.
