Alston Heritage Trail

This Trail has been extracted from the Alston Heritage Trail leaflet which we produced in partnership and with funding from Historic England, along with the Eden Heritage app.Alston Heritage Trail leaflet

All the places mentioned here are open to the public, and most are easy to access by car, public transport or on foot. Some sites are free to visit; whilst others have an admission fee.

The map indicates the locations of all the key sites. The wording next to each entry indicates the facilities available.  If an asterisk* is shown after a symbol it means that the facilities could have restrictions, eg limited wheelchair accessibility, parking nearby or dogs only allowed in certain areas.

There is no suggested start point or trail to follow; rather the aim is for you to explore Eden's historic attractions at your leisure.
