The Loanhead Heritage Trail was officially launched at Loanhead Library yesterday.

Attended by Provost Debbie McColl, Cllr Russell Imrie, Cllr Kelly Parry, members of Loanhead & District Community Council, staff from Midlothian Council and Loanhead Residents.

The Trail has been two years in the making with six stainless steel benches installed within Loanhead last year, and the creation of a trail map leaflet this year, which, thanks to funding from Aging Well to cover printing costs.

The map can be obtained free of charge from Loanhead Library.

The trail map leaflet gives a brief history of Loanhead Industry, with the map showing places of interest. Stainless Steel benches incorporated within the trail have additional historical facts.
