Frequently asked questions
In what format do I send my trail to you?
There is a link to a pdf with all of this information just a little further up this page (under 'Submit Your Trail' details)
Can we post our trail on social media?
Yes please do! And dont forget to tag us in your Instagram posts @my_heritage_trail
How long does my trail need to be?
As long or as short as you like. So long as it is a route that is interesting to you, and you can provide some photograhs to accompany the trail, you can submit to us.
What will you do with my trail?
Most of the trails will be posted to our website, and/or shared on social media. We would like to as many people as possible to try your trail.
What will you do with my personal information?
With the exception of your first name (to name your trail) none of your personal information will be shared online. This includes email, full name, social media handles, address.
Have you tried the trails out?
Unfortunately not, neither 'My Heritage Trails' nor 'Tyne and Wear Heritage Forum' have road-tested the trials prior to posting on the website.
Can I do my trail alone?
Of course, we recognise lockdown can be a lonely time. So get your hat and gloves on and get out there to discover your trail.
What counts as a heritage feature?
Heritage features can be buildings but also, less obvious existing elements within a village or district: pathways and bridges and other surviving structures from a vanished past: signs and old shop fronts, evidence on the ground of agricultural practice or industrial systems, landscapes and much smaller features such as post boxes or tide stones.
