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.
