Mansfield Heritage Trail

The Mansfield Town Centre Heritage Trail guides you around some of the interesting buildings and monuments in the bustling market town.

Enjoy finding out about the hidden stories that exist behind the façade of the town's buildings as you follow the heritage trail.

The heritage trail covers buildings on:

  • Leeming Street
  • Market Place
  • Church Street
  • West Gate, and
  • other interesting places around Mansfield town centre.

The tour, which can be followed by booklet or by audio downloads, includes a series of plaques positioned at areas of historical interest around the town. The walk has been divided into colour coded sections and you can decide what you want to see and how far you want to walk.

This tour is not a complete record of the history of Mansfield and there is a wealth of information available at Mansfield Museum (opens in a new window), which is the starting point of the tour.

View or listen to the trail

Hard copies of the leaflet and kids trail brochure can be picked up at the Museum.
