DISCOVERY TRAILS IN THE SOUTH WEST

The Church Trails/Children's trails have now also included trails for people living with Dementia and all are combined under the title of 'TRAILS OF DISCOVERY'.
Two national 'firsts' are illustrated here with the launch of a non-ecclesiastical trail of Crownhill Fort, Plymouth and the first memory trail at St Eustachius' Church, Tavistock.

Image one illustrates the completion by The Arts Society South Devon based in Plymouth of a Discovery Trail at Crownhill Fort, Plymouth, a Landmark Trust property (www.landmarktrust.org.uk). This is the first historic building trail for The Arts Society.
Image two is the question sheet for this trail and image three is the answer sheet.

The subsequent images are of the new trail for people living with dementia and their carers. The words of the trail have been written by professionals in this field. The trail guides them around the church and asks them to smell, touch and listen to sounds in the church which will help to evoke memories and prompt discussion. This first trail was presented to Dr Chris Hardwick, Vicar of St.Eustachius' Church, Tavistock on 25th May by Pauline Stewart, Society Chairman of the South Devon Society and national head of Trails of Discovery. Members of the society, South West Area chairman, David Yates, June Wildman, Trustee of the Tavistock Memory Cafe, members of the congregation and residents from local care homes attended the presentation. This trail was very well received by all and copies taken for the Memory Cafe in Yelverton. The society will soon start a second trail in St. Mary's, Tamerton Foliot.
