Kimberley:then – The Kimberley Heritage Trail
Kimberley has some amazing ‘Hidden Heritage’ waiting to be explored with much of it located either within or close to the town centre.
The Kimberley Heritage Trail was recently created by local historian Roy Plumb, which highlights many buildings and other key points of interest with real historical importance to the area.
The Kimberley Heritage Trail aims to guide visitors through Kimberley town and beyond, where you can explore and discover some of the interesting, but less obvious buildings and structures which are part of Kimberley’s hidden heritage.
To help visitors navigate the route, a companion guide for the trail has also been produced and is available from the Kimberley Library, several businesses around the town centre (please ask the individual businesses for details) and for download on this page in PDF format below the gallery.
The trail is made up of two short circular routes both starting from the same point at Toll Bar Square (see map on centre pages of booklet below). Each route is approximately 1km long with much of the trails mostly on pavements and surfaced paths.
PLEASE NOTE: The route does have several climbs, with gradients ranging from 1:14 to 1:8. There is also one point on the route where pavement access is restricted to 3ft wide.
