Projects – Heritage Trail

The idea is to create a Heritage Trail to highlight those places in Wigan, which are culturally and historically significant to that of the Wigan Rugby Football Club. The idea is a simple one: using a smartphone, device or simply a map, follow the route around Wigan and learn a bit about relevant sites in the town. When you download the QR code, it takes you to a web page where you read about the location you’re at.

At present, this is at a concept stage with around 30 sites so far have been identified as being significant to the Wigan Club, from pubs, residences, old grounds and even stretches of grass you probably did not know had an impact on the Wigan Club.

This would be a trail around the town highlighting significant locations linked to the founding and history of the club By having a QR reader this would bring this to life adding further detail to the locations.
