The Blue Plaque Trail

We were delighted to launch our new Blue Plaque Trail at the Mayor's Market for the Coronation weekend in 2023. Thank you to everyone who came to chat and pick up a copy of the Blue Plaque Trail leaflet.

Two years in the making, this trail is another way to find out more about the history of our beautiful medieval town.

WALK around the town centre with your leaflet. It highlights the blue plaques that tell the story of the people and places that shaped its history. 

DISCOVER the fascinating stories, hidden behind the snippets on the blue plaques, about the people and places in Higham's past on our Blue Plaque Trail website 

More copies of the leaflet are available from the Town Hall and at our events. Or you can print one from the Blue Plaque Trail website
