Wickersley Locations Trail
Following on from the success of the Parish's VE75 Poppy Trail and building on the popularity of local and family walks, Wickersley Parish Council created a 'Locations Trail'. The Trail picked out landmarks around the village and combined them with historical facts, information and local stories – the Trail has enabled everyone to learn a little more about their village.
Said Cllr Sue Ellis, Chair of the Wickersley Parish Council "Our Locations Trail has given another dimension to local walks in 'Lockdown'. We've had people who have lived in the village for years expressing their surprise at some of the information we've discovered about which they were unaware. And the Trail has been great for those who have recently moved into the village and want to find more about the area they live in.
We've published the answers on our Facebook page @WickersleyParish Council and all the information we've gleaned and pulled together will go in the 'Local History' section of our new Parish website. We're hoping that local people who have family information and stories will get in touch and help us develop this important village archive.
We're grateful for the help provided by former Parish Clerk of many years, David Pike and local residents and former Parish Councillors, Keith and Beryl Billington"
