THE SCARBOROUGH HERITAGE TRAIL

Central Tramway is proud to be the recipient of The Scarborough and District Civic Society's 50th Heritage Trail plaque, an honour that was celebrated on the 13th of July 2012 when the Mayor of Scarborough, Councillor Helen Mallory unveiled the blue plaque by the top station on the corner of St. Nicholas Cliff.


The blue plaques that represent the heritage trail commemorate some of the town's most significant historic sites. Like the Tramway the locations along the trail were significant in the town's rich history from its origins as a small fishing village to a thriving Victorian seaside resort.

The map and a full description of all the sites can be found in 'The Scarborough Heritage Trail book Part 1. According to the Civic Society another booklet is planned to cover a wider area.
