The Trail was started in 2005 by the Teignmouth Folk Festival with boards at points of interest round the town for residents and visitors to read. This proved very popular, and it was extended to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year in 2012 and again in 2014. Taking advantage of new technology, the Trail now incorporates a website which can be accessed by Smartphone. There are also Talking Pens using microdot technology which allow users to access the trail information if they have sight problems. The Trail starts at the Museum and the Talking Pens are available there to pick up from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am. There is a deposit to be paid for taking the Talking Pens out of the Museum.


The Teign Room is available for hire to local community groups and businesses. All enquiries to info@teignheritage.org.uk or 01626 777041
