History Trails

Logo Designed By Rachel StubbsSuch was the response to the competition for a logo for the newsletter that the councillors decided to incorporate one of those entries into another new publication. Rachel Stubbs' entry was selected as the logo for the front cover of the updated Town Council publication “Kirkbymoorside History Trails”. Rachel was invited to work alongside our graphic designer, Derek Thrippleton, from DT Design, through all the stages required to turn her picture into a piece of graphic art ready for publication. And here is the resulting cover.

This booklet is designed to give the visitor an otherwise hidden insight into the history of our charming market town by leading you along a series of short walks. Each trail has a map and a series of photgrpahs showing the sites of interest and giving a little detail of their past. For the more adventurous there is also a longer trail which will take you out into the surrounding countryside and through the charming villages, passing by the Ryedale Folk Museum, and bringing you back into town. The booklet is available from the local bookshop, the Community Office and also direct from the Town Council Office. If you wish to purchase the booklet by post then please contact the Town Clerk.
