About our partners

This unique series of walks around the city will describe the fascinating history from Roman times to the present day. Local volunteers, including Chichester University students and pupils at Bishop Luffa School, are currently creating these walks leaflets through the Chichester Heritage Trails project, which is run by the Chichester Society and managed by History People UK.

The project has received a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £53,000. As part of the project, volunteers are doing archival research and carrying out oral history interviews with residents to recall their memories of Chichester in the past. They have received training in these heritage skills through the project.

The Chichester Heritage Trails project is a partnership that is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
