HERITAGE TRAILS 
WHT TRAIL 7 -  TARRING  TITLE   PAGE
                The Heritage Trails are the product of a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by the Worthing Heritage Alliance. They cover a wide diversity of topics and local areas and together enable us to take a fascinating walk through many aspects of our local history and that of the surrounding countryside. They are intended to be enjoyed both as part of organised walks, scheduled on a regular basis with an experienced guide, or unaccompanied.   
There are 12 Trails in all, each accompanied by a leaflet containing an aerial map with places of interest along the trail marked and described in detail.A number of the Trails have video links associated with them. These give a more  personal account at particular points along the way , with a commentary from Chris Hare, the  Project Manager and local historian, supported by members of the Alliance.    
  The  leaflets, and related publicity regarding the organised walks are available from a number of outlets in the Town e.g. The Museum, The Library, and The Denton  Lounge        The Title pages from each leaflet are shown below. Click on the Title page to display the  complete trail (N.B. Use the PDF view option to show the pages side by side). Those trails with  video clips have the clips numbered corresponding to the location number shown on the leaflet  and are shown alongside the Title page . Click on the Location number to link to the video.  (Once the video starts click on the square symbol at the extreme right end of the bottom of the  screen to enlarge the picture).
