How to Use

The 20 stories on this website link to 20 real-life signs, now in place around Market Rasen. The signs and the site take you on a historical tour of the town, with the past brought to life through stories, videos, voices and even a panoramic view from the church tower!

If you have a smartphone or tablet, you can view the stories as you walk round town, with QR codes to scan from each sign that take you straight to the right story. Alternatively, you can look at the stories in comfort with a desktop computer, as a virtual journey through historic Market Rasen.

TO GET STARTED click return to map to open up our interactive map, and then click any of our dapper top hats, bonnets or poppies to get a summary of that story in that location. Click FIND OUT MORE to open the full page, or click X to close.

Search through the stories on any page using the slider images, click the left or right arrow to slide!

You can visit the stories in any order you fancy, but there is a suggested route on every sign, starting with St Thomas' Church next to the market place.
