NEW booklets have been printed showing a places of interest around an historic Wirral town.
For more than 30 years, conservation areas around Neston have been printed in the Neston Town Trail booklet called, guiding visitors around historic buildings in the town.
An updated version has been produced, available from Neston Civic Society.
The Town Trail was first produced in 1982, with text by Geoffrey Place and illustrations by Bernadette and Naomi Bowes.
Many reprints have been produced over the years and an audio version was created for the town council's website.
Now local historian Susan Chambers, a secretary of the civic society in the 1980s, has updated the trail.
She has created a new format, with colour photographs and old pictures to compare, plus highlighted directions.
Architect Stephen Quicke and his assistant Darin Grozdev created the final design, which includes a copy of part of the map made in 1732 for Sir Roger Mostyn, courtesy of Bangor University Archives, who hold the original.
The booklet also includes a quiz, based on photographs of quirky features from the walk.
Answers to the quiz are on the website nestoncivicsociety.co.uk.
Cost of producing the new 16-page booklet was thanks to a generous bequest from Mrs Ruby Holloway of Neston. It will be available free of charge from Neston Library.
