The Cornwall Museums Partnership is a charity that exists to help people learn about and be inspired by Cornwall's museum collections. They have recently produced a series of videos about Volunteering in local museums, which have been posted on Youtube. Here is the video produced with the assistance of Saltash Heritage.
SALTASH BLUE PLAQUE TRAIL
Along with the erection of seven Blue Plaques at prominent places around the town, the Saltash Blue Plaque Trail was launched at the recent Saltash Heritage A.G.M.
The plaques were officially 'opened' by HRH Duchess of Gloucester on Thursday 15th September 2016, and you can take the trail at any time by picking up a leaflet at the Museum, Local History Centre, Guildhall or Saltash Library.
The plaques commemorate various Saltash people and the places they lived, but the trail passes several other locations of note. The trail leaflet has a map, as well as full directions, and compass bearings from one location to the next, so children of all ages can try a spot of map and compass work. Small compasses are available for sale in the museum if you want a go.
