St Helens Heritage Trail

Rotary St Helens in partnership with the Council and other key partners is creating a Heritage Trail around this famous Borough of ours. President of Rotary Club of St Helens Paul Winstanley stated “St Helens is steeped in history on how this town of ours became world beaters. By creating a heritage trail around the Borough will increase the community’s awareness; sense of pride of our St Helens Borough and raise young people and older generation’s aspirations, it will also be a benefit to our local economy. The plan is to have the first Heritage Sites in place before the Rugby World Cup in 2022. The first sites include, Totally Wicked Stadium, The Hotties, Cannington Shaw, Parish Church, Friends Meeting House and the Historical Centre of St Helens. This project will really complement the plans the Council have to regenerate our Town Centre, exciting times ahead, watch out more exciting updates in the near future”.

Tanya Wilcock ,St Helens Council stated “As Director of Communities with responsibility to deliver on our Heritage Strategy, our partnership with Rotary St Helens allows us to deliver one of the key actions within that strategy which are Heritage Walking Trails within the borough. St Helens has a wealth of heritage and history shaped by the Industrial Revolution and driven by innovation. The natural resources of coal, sand and water provided the foundations for industry to grow which led to England’s first canal and a significant section of the world’s first passenger railway. Innovation still plays its part in St Helen’s borough today and these Heritage Trails which the Council and the Rotary are working on together will bring residents and visitors on a journey of discovery. This will help our young people and older generations to be inspired and to understand how their future and the future of their town continues to build on that proud heritage“.
