We are delighted to report that we have been able to install three more plaques on the Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council Heritage Trail.

The Newtown Heritage Trail aims to commemorate people, places, events, and achievements in Newtown. The aim is to link these stories to buildings in which people lived or worked, and to provide a permanent recognition to some of the most notable figures in Newtown’s recent and distant past.

This week Cllr Tracy Owen, Lead Councillor for the project co-ordinated the installation of the next phase of plaques to the trail. Commenting on this week’s progress, Cllr Tracy Owen “I am so pleased to be nearing completion for the installation of the Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council Heritage Trail, with only a few plaques left to go.  Many thanks to John Evans, the curator of the Newtown Textile Museum, and his staff, for giving permission for a plaque, and meeting me recently to chat about the project while it was installed by the Town Council staff.  Many thanks also to the owners of the Newtown Market Hall and The Regent Centre, both of whom have also recently given permission for plaques, which were installed on the same day.  The Heritage Trail is available to follow online on the Town Council website, and is a free, interesting, Covid friendly activity for anyone to enjoy, particularly for anyone looking for something to do during the summer holidays.”

Each plaque contains a unique QR codes which will take you to  https://newtown.org.uk/discover-newtown/newtown-heritage-trail  , Where further details can be found.
