In these unprecedented times many people have enjoyed getting to know their local area with new or renewed pleasure.
Following a national Trails of Discovery meeting that I attended, I was inspired to consider possible trails in our local area. On Market Street there is a Blue Plaque dedicated to the artist Helen Allingham who lived in the area from 1849-1862. This, perhaps might be a good starting point on a journey through Altrincham 1850 to the present day?
Trails of Discovery developed by local societies are supported at national and regional level and can involve other groups such as local history groups. If anyone is interested in sharing this journey or has ideas for other local trails then please contact me:
