Wherever you live, there’s treasure to be discovered.
Not just gold and gems but stories of buildings, locations and people.
Learning about our local heritage is important because it helps us connect to our past and it can be as simple as going for a walk!
Our heritage is all around us, sometimes standing proud in the open air, or sometimes hidden under a bush!
We want to hear from our Heritage Heroes! Tell us about the local heritage in your area.
Send us a picture of your local heritage and record a message about what it is!
Here’s how to record your heritage fact…
Step 1: Choose something local to talk about!
This could be the town hall, a train station, a lighthouse or a post office…
Step 2: Find out what, how, and why.
Why was it built? Who is it built by? When was it built? What is the style of the building? What is the purpose?
Step 3: Write it down.
Write down what you’d like to say – say no more than 100 words.
Step 4: Record!
Record it below and send it in…
