New heritage trail unveiled

A new heritage trail has been unveiled in the borough.

Year 8 and 9 students from Seaton Burn College have worked with Black Dog Design to gather and present information by hosting coffee mornings, and chatting to many members of the community.

Key stories, characters, and venues have been highlighted by the use of plaques and of information boards around Seaton Burn, which form a ‘Heritage Trail’ consisting of 13 plaques or information boards.

The project will continue to grow as students develop the website and build strong links with the local community.

Project leader Helen Arnold said: “This has been a fantastic project both for the college and the local community.

“The Heritage Lottery Fund grant has not only allowed us to explore Seaton Burn’s heritage but it has given our students a sense of pride in their local area and provided a permanent and ongoing resource.

“We have uncovered some great stories from the first wine bar in the area to lost false teeth and bombing raids”.
