Treasure Trails are a fun and exciting way of exploring new areas. A number of treasure trails have been set up in the Cotswolds at locations including Cirencester Old Town, Fairford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Lechlade on Thames. Treasure Trails offer a great way of discovering some of the most beautiful and historic locations in the Cotswolds while making sure that children are fully engaged!
Your mission for the trail around Cirencester Old Town reads:
Professor Corin Neeyam, curator of the town museum, has uncovered a plot to destroy priceless artefacts (as yet unveiled to the public), held in vaults deep below ground. Can you help to stop their destruction? Solve the clues to deactivate and protect the town's heritage.
The Trail takes you from the Market Place in the centre of Cirencester where you can admire some of the most historic and scenic parts of the town, before heading for the former Abbey grounds. This makes a perfect place for a picnic before the Trail brings you back to the parish church. This Trail is approx. 2 miles long.
