Grosmont Heritage Trail and Local History Exhibition

Earlier this year the Grosmont Business Group were successful in securing a Heritage grant from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park towards a village leaflet, heritage trail and local history exhibition. This has now been completed and installed in St. Matthew’s Church, within the village and we would like to take this opportunity to encourage people to visit the exhibition.
The leaflets are available from businesses within the village and link in with a simple trail with information panels outside of various buildings en-route.
The local history exhibition is permanently sited in the church, which is open daily, and gives details of the area’s geology, industry, Medieval and early history as well many snippets of social history relating to the village.
Please come along and visit the display, which we hope to expand in the future as part of the This Exploited Land project, again with the help of the National Park and help to highlight this most fascinating area.

Tammy Naylor
