This is a short, easy to follow trail through the village which explains the wonderful rich heritage and culture of this beautiful conservation area. Having been a settlement for over 400 years, Moneymore’s historic past can still be seen in a range of important architectural buildings which hide behind the busy village of today.
The young at heart can discover the trail and enjoy doing some simple brass rubbing. If you ask at the Manor House Reception or Springhill House you can get some paper and wax crayons. Take these on your trail and look for the brass insert on every interpretation plaque - located beside each building numbered on the map. See if you can use the rubbings to spell ‘moneymore’, you may have to search for the correct letters!
