Serendipity Trail Map

The Shawford Serendipity Trail Map

This map accompanies the description of the Shawford Serendipity Trail.

The Trail is a beginner’s guide through a historical treasure-hunt in Compton and Shawford.

It was written by Tom Threlfall in 1996 at the time of the centenary celebrations of the Parish Hall.

Tom relied upon much original research by Barrie Hazlitt, who sadly died before he could complete the project.

The full walk is just under 6 miles. For those of you who don't have the time and/or energy to complete the whole walk, Tom describes two different options for shortening the walk.

  • Follow the route anti-clockwise from the blue marker.
  • Click on any marker for a short description.
  • You can hide the markers using the layer control icon at the top right corner of the map

You can download the walk as a GPX file (for your GPS device) or a KML file (which you can open with Google Earth)
