Do you have an interest in local history and heritage?
Would you like to share that interest with your children and grandchildren?
The Go West Heritage Knights can help.
For 10 years the Go West Heritage Knights and volunteers have been developing and refining a fun way for children, with their teachers, families and friends, to discover local history. Now they bring you 'Play Heritage Detectives', a collaborative game for families who must search for information to help Arthur a 13th century knight and his friend Gruff, a troubadour, as they prepare to explore our area today looking for the information that will help them understand more about this area today and in the past.
England is rich in its built heritage. The Heritage Knights believe that the national and the local story can be discovered through what we can see around us. They invite you to become heritage detectives. No matter where you live heritage detectives can unearth stories, stories in the stones. Explore the pages of this site to discover how.
The Go West Heritage Knights are based in the west of England, mostly in Worcestershire and the borderlands of England and Wales but what we have to share with you is an idea that is universal and a process that can be used everywhere and anywhere. We have developed a website dedicated to helping heritage detectives and others with an interest in exploring the story of England. Visit the website developed for heritage detectives and countryside explorers. Use the Time Traveller's Guide with its collection of maps and photographs, Information Library, gazetteer of parish churches to help you explore two very beautiful areas in Worcestershire
