Central Library self-guided trails

The Manchester Central Library and Archives+ trails have been developed to engage key stage 2 and 3 learners with the Manchester Central Library building and Archives+ as well as the heritage of the city of Manchester.

The trails take place in a public building. It is advisable to divide the class into smaller groups starting at different points of the trails. The trails are divided into sections to make this possible. Each group must be accompanied by an adult. You will need a clipboard and pencil for each person. Alternatively, you can ask learners to work in pairs. It is advisable that you and any adults in your group read through the Background and Teacher’s Notes before your visit. You can download the resource as a pdf and paper copies are available from info@archivesplus.org.
