Welcome to the Gorton Heritage Trail
The Gore Brook Valley Conservation Area


Gorton Heritage Trail has been designed to promote and conserve the heritage and wildlife of Gore Brook Valley.

It lies mainly within the Gore Brook Conservation area.  There are eight listed buildings and other places of interest  along the trail.

The trail runs through what is still a surprisingly rural and environmentally diverse area; it has a meadow area along Gore Brook and a Butterfly Garden which give an ecological dimension to the trail.

Through the pages of this website, we will aim to provide a 'virtual tour' of the Heritage Trail, using pictures and videos; give as much local history information as we can relating to the Points of Interest on the Trail, and Gorton in general; and provide educational resources to promote the history and the wildlife that can be found in our area.

If you have any pictures or information you would like to share through our pages, please get in touch using our Contact Form, or by clicking HERE to email directly.  Many thanks, enjoy the Website and The Gorton Heritage Trail.
