Maitland City Council is excited to announce the revitalised Morpeth Heritage Walk is now ready for the community and visitors to enjoy.
The walk is full of new features and upgrades, including a new set of site markers together with a new brochure and free self guided audio tour.
The design of the new site markers pay homage to the well loved original ceramic tile markers.Coordinator City and Visitor Economy Caroline Booth says, 'the Heritage Walk has long been a popular activity amongst visitors to Morpeth.
The addition of the audio tour in particular is an excellent way for participants to gain a detailed insight into the town's storied past.'I encourage locals and visitors to explore Morpeth and the heritage walk.
Morpeth is a great mix of everyday conveniences amidst unique shops where you'll discover artisan treasures, fashion boutiques and delicious treats. It's easy to see why Morpeth is one of Maitland's most popular places to visit.
You can listen to the audio tour by downloading the Maitland Walks app from the Apple or Google Play stores. Don't forget headphones to listen to the site narration, detailing the history of buildings and people at each stop. A noted feature is the representations of characters including Lieutenant E. C. Close, who was a central player in Morpeth's history.
