All the Town Trails begin at the main Square in Moretonhampstead opposite the Information Centre. There are seats, a lamp post and a mosaic on the ground of the square which is actually more like a triangle.Notice the Sparrowhawk on the wall. When King John granted the town its charter during the thirteenth century, the rent was set as one sparrowhawk per year. The bird has become something of a symbol for the Town and is incorporated into works of public art by artist, Roger Dean.Look out for the coloured plaques to guide you on your walks.
Location Notes : Central Moretonhampstead opposite the Information Centre at the beginning of the main high street which is called Court St..
