A number of members of the Executive Committee led town walks for interested parties and in 1995 it was decided that a way-marked Town Trail should be created and pamphlets made available for visitors and other interested parties. The route started and finished at the Kirkgate Centre and visited 19 sites of interest. Numbered plaques were placed at these sites and a short description of each was given in the pamphlet. These proved very popular and numerous reprints have had to be made since their introduction.
An additional Georgian Trail was created in 2005 in support of the Cockermouth Georgian Festival. Both these trail guides are available from the Tourist Information Office or the New Bookshop. When requested, and by prior arrangement, members of the Executive will take groups round on a conducted tour of the Town Trail.
A major revision was produced in 2010 to incorporate the significance of the Art works in the redeveloped Market Place which was completed in 2008.
Additionally the Trust produced in 2010 in conjunction with the Chamber of Trade, a Flood Trail leaflet describing the extent and impact of the floods of November 2009.
