Walk your way through Droitwich Spa's heritage

Droitwich Editorial 13th Mar, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016   0

THE HISTORY of Droitwich will be brought to life in a series of special town walks.

Residents and visitors in the town have been invited to learn about the Spa in a completely new and originally way for the first time tomorrow (Saturday).

The historic guided walks which will be about an hour and a half long will take place on the second Saturday of each month up until October.

People wanting to take part have been told to meet at 2pm at the Droitwich Spa Heritage and Information Centre which has organised the events in collaboration with members of Droitwich Civic Society, Droitwich History and Archaeology Society and actors at the Norbury Theatre.




The walks will visit all the historic buildings and points of interest in the town including places such as Priory House which is a timber framed building that was built in the 17th century.

As well as this, people taking part will also be able to learn about the salt industry and will be taken to Gurney Lane, the Tower Hill Pumping Station and the Upwich Brine Pit.


Along the way walkers will also be able to meet characters such as John Corbett who will be really bringing the town’ history to life. They will be played by actors from the Norbury Theatre.

Rebecca Pye, Droitwich Spa Heritage and Information Centre’s heritage manager, said: “It is brilliant – it is a nice way to learn about the town you live in and the buildings you walk past every day.

“It is a nice way to open your eyes and really learn about Droitwich.”

Tickets are £2 per person and under 16s are free when accompanied by an adult – the maximum is two children per paying adult.
