New trail celebrates Leicester's Arts and Crafts

A new trail has been developed to mark the history of the Arts and Crafts Movement in Leicestershire.

Stoneywell Cottage can be found on the trail

The Arts and Crafts Movement was an international ideology in the decorative and fine arts, formed by a group of artists, designers and social campaigners in the late 19th century.

It flourished in Europe and America between 1880-1910, focusing on a return to well-made, handcrafted goods, and was one of the most important and influential styles of the 20th century.

The themed trail for visitors to the city and county is presented in a new guide, produced by Leicestershire Promotions in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council and the National Trust.

The free guide will be available from visitor centres, tourist information centres, visitor attractions and museums across the county. Copies can be downloaded from goleicestershire.com/artsandcrafts
