Exploring Our Forest Bream Heritage Walk

Bream Heritage Walk

There are many heritage sites in the village of Bream and surrounding area resulting from iron and coal mining activities. This walk is designed to highlight the heritage of the area using public footpaths, pavements, quiet roads and Forestry England land. 

The route covers about eight miles and is designed to be walked all at once or can easily be walked in sections. 

Points of interest have been identified by 'way-marker' signs that tie in with a printed booklet supplemented by audio downloads. 

Please see Bream Heritage Walk website to obtain the walk material and enjoy exploring the area!

What has the project delivered?

The walk connects three villages: Bream, Whitecroft and Brockhollands. 

Residents and visitors are able to easily access local heritage sites and find out about them as they explore the way-marked route. 

The introduction of this new walk has helped us all improve our knowledge of the area and to identify with its heritage.

Our thanks go to Geoff Davis, and his team of volunteers, for developing this wonderful walk and accompanying website and leaflet.
