Panels and Heritage Trail, 2005

The appeal project included various educational strands. Peterborough Museum organised a Heritage Trail taking visitors around the Peterborough area, looking at the history of Norman Cross and the surrounding countryside. Teacher’s packs were produced to educate children about the Norman Cross prison depot, and both these strands of the project were unveiled in their draft form at a ceremony in October 2005, as a contribution to the Trafalgar Bicentenary celebrations. At this event were also unveiled the Community Panels, a three panel tapestry telling the story of the prison depot.
