Representatives from Scotland’s Urban Past, Historic Environment Scotland and Angus Council, along with children from Arbroath Academy, officially opened the Arbroath Abbey Trail outside the new Abbey Quarter housing development. The event was followed by the premiere of the video about the project in the Arbroath Abbey Visitor Centre and the children received Heritage Hero Awards in front of their parents.
The Arbroath Abbey Trial will be available all year at the Arbroath Abbey and will let people find different historical characters linked to places around the town.
Communities Convener, Craig Fotheringham said
“It’s great to see this this initiative linked to Arbroath Abbey and engage with young people to share information about this historical place and Arbroath. The Trail banners placed around Abbey Quarter housing development link the new modern housing with historical associations”.
