The Heritage Trail, financed by Irwell Valley Housing Association, is the inspiration of local wildlife writer Sean Wood who also researched and sourced much of the content and pictures you can find on the information boards along the journey.
Approximately a two mile journey along highways, lanes and woodland, the Haughton Green Heritage Trail links the past with the present, bringing to life the industrial, social and cultural tapestry of Haughton Green, Haughton Village and surrounding neighbourhoods.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“I am so excited to see this Heritage Trail officially open. I have been pushing for this for a while, so it was a particular pleasure being here today.
“I know Irwell Valley will want to thank Margaret Smethurst for her incredible support on this – she has been one of the very best and most active local historians and we have lots to thank her for.”
