What is the Living Heritage City Trail?

The Living Heritage City Trail is a taster of the Living Heritage City project (launching in March 2025) that will connect the archives and collections of our museums to buildings and communities in Stoke and Hanley.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council will aim to work in partnership with local communities along the route and will consult and create with users, organisations and partners to showcase the rich stories and significant heritage of the city.

Read more about the Living Heritage City Trail on the Stoke-on-Trent City Council website.
