TRAVEL & TOURISM

 

National Anglo-Jewish Heritage Trail

A comprehensive web site that is an initiative of the Spiro Ark http://www.spiroark.org/. Its  goal is “to raise awareness of this rich, but often unknown, history among both Jews and non-Jews alike, and to encourage individuals to further investigate their own roots as well as the fascinating origins of the community.”

The site has links to Jewish heritage trails in nearly 20 localities, with more planned: London, Bath, Bradford, Brackley, Bright & Hove, Canterbury, Cheltenham, Bury St. Edmunds, Dover, Guildford, Hull, Leeds, Lincoln, Northampton, Oxford, Ramsgate, Sheerness & Blue Town, Stroud,

There are also links to many institutions and other resources.
