Serving the people of Stroud to create a thriving, sustainable community

Stroud Town History Trail

Stroud Local History Society has produced a pocket-sized guide (£2.50 for 24pp) that takes you round the town centre and describes the history of the buildings that you pass. It has been written to interest local people as well as visitors. The circular tour takes about two hours and, if you are local, you can do a bit at a time!

Copies are on sale at R&R Books, Shambles Indoor market, the Canal Visitor Centre, and the Town Council Office on London Road. Or you can get a copy posted by sending an enquiry to:

An on-line version of the Stroud Town Trail, which can also be used on Smartphones, can be found on the Visit Stroud website.

Stroud District Trails App

Whether you've lived in the district all your life, or are visiting for the first time, Discover Stroud Trails, a new free-of-charge walking app will help you make the most of the Stroud district.

Developed by Stroud District Council's Planning Strategy service, the first trails on the newly launched app feature the towns of Stroud, Stonehouse, Dursley, Wotton-under-Edge, Nailsworth, and Berkeley.

Each circular trail gives a route to follow that can be started at any point, with information about significant buildings along the routes.

The app is free to download and use and works on both Apple and Android devices.
