The Burwash Tourist Map has been installed in the bus shelter in Burwash High Street. A further map will also be installed at Bateman’s this week.
The maps feature details of the most historic and iconic buildings in the High Street and are part of a jointly-funded project between the Parish Council and the National Trust, which also provided the brown tourist signage on the A265.
The final phase of the project, which will see direction tiles installed along the footpath between Bateman’s and the Bear Car Park, is expected to be completed in the next few weeks.
Paper copies of the map will soon be available for £1 each.
The Parish Council supports local businesses and this project is aimed at encouraging more tourists to visit the High Street and help sustain our local shops.
Special thanks go to Altered Images for preparing the maps, Steve Payne for his work on the installation and Burwash artist Graham Sendall for allowing use of his artwork of most of the sites featured on the map.
