Heritage Paving Slabs

We have commissioned and installed six special ceramic plaques, located at key historical sites around the town, to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the union of Weymouth and Melcombe Regis. The Beach and Harbour History Trail helps promote Weymouth’s heritage and draws people to different areas of the town.

We Are Weymouth, is excited to announce the installation of six custom designed paving slabs located at key historical landmarks throughout the town.  The paving slabs were designed by Ned Heywood of Heritage Ceramics with artwork supplied by Weymouth Museum, which also provided much of the text.  As part of the Heritage Trail, these paving slabs offer facts about the historical landmarks and help to showcase Weymouth’s rich and varied history. 

The Heritage Trail is a walk through time around Weymouth including everything from the famous cannonball in Maiden Street to the plaque commemorating the entry of the Black Death to the UK in 1348.

The six paving slabs can be found at the following locations: 

  • The Tudor House       
  • Holy Trinity Church
  • Old Town Hall
  • Ralph Allen’s House
  • St Mary’s Church
  • The Custom House             
“We are lucky to have such rich heritage in Weymouth which includes a range of attractions and historical buildings; a draw for both locals and visitors to the area. We are proud to have installed the slabs as part of an initiative focused on improving Weymouth. Installing these heritage slabs provides a long-term legacy for the town; celebrating some of its most outstanding historical buildings.”
